A Sailboat and Some Kitties

The DRS Designs Challenge this week is a color challenge and here is the pallet:

This picture makes me feel refreshed just looking at it! 

Here is my creation

Stamped the Sailboat image, sponged yellow on top and blue on bottom and edged with yellow all the way around.  Colored up my sails and boat with a paintbrush dipped in my inks.  Mixed up some white acrylic paint and recollections fine glitter to make my waves - the glitter added a lot of texture so I will be using this combination (more glitter) for snow on my winter cards this year.  I stamped on the You are My Sunshine sentiment as it seemed to fit this card the best of all my sentiments.  Took my scraps and stamped on some Lines of Plenty and stenciled on some of the leftover paint and glitter to make the little banners on the side. 

Hope you are inspired by these colors and fun image.  Come play with us!

Made this card earlier in the week also using DRS Designs images, ink, and an animal print stencil.  This one is the opposite of my sailboat card as far as colors.

I stamped the new Ruler image (I love this one!!), the Happy Cat Sitting image, and the Walk on the Wild Side Birthday greeting.  I really like how the stenciling on the kitties came out. 

Hope you are having a wonderful week!



  1. FANTASTIC - the sailboat card is gorgeous - such lovely colour and texture :-D
    Of course, I just adore any kind of kitties so how could I not love those ? Great background and I love the stenciling.

  2. Both are fantastic cards. I really love the look of your sailboat with those banners on the side. I see some CASing going on here in my house. I adore the kitty card. Nice vintage look and I, too, love that ruler. Have a great day.

  3. Fabulous cards Nancy, a lovely sea scene and gorgeous colours on the first one - super kitties and great sentiment on the second one.

  4. Both cards are fabulous Nancy, I must say I love the way you have added texture to the sea, I hope you are keeping well

  5. What a fun pair of cards! The paint/glitter combo makes your card look more like an oil painting than a card, and I love it! Great take on the photo inspiration! The kitties give a great message to the recipient too!

  6. These are both absolutely amazing Nancy!! Your details on the water with the sailboat look stunning and I love the banners! :) The kitty creation is oh so fun and sweet!! Hope you have the most wonderful weekend my friend! HUGS

  7. Beautiful cards Nancy! Love the mixture you made for texture, how clever. ~jeni :)
