Another testing challenge this week at CD Sunday, as it says above the theme is "We are sailing". Hmm, definitely not sure how I was going to deal with that. At first I had what I thought was a brilliant idea of creating a scene with a camel in it. Camel? Sailing? See, I had remembered it was also known as the "ship of the desert". But as hard as I tried I couldn't get together what I had in mind.
Then yesterday I had an idea & here I am. The CD I used was from My Craft Studio - Papercraft Expert. Hang in there all will be revealed.
Here are a scan of the papers I used;
and here is my card;
I used a white 5x5 square card, then from another piece of white card I cut the shape of the sailing boat & decorated it with the papers using the Iris Folding technique. I trimmed it with deckle edged scissors, then created a border around the square card with some of the brown paper strips to frame the image. I edged the cut edges with silver border peel-offs & found some borders that looked like waves so added those once I had mounted the image on the card.
The iris folding design i found courtesy of the Circle of Crafters - click on their name to go to their website. This link will take you direct to the pattern for the sail boat - but there is lots more on there.
Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit.
