Calm vs Storm

 I am trying to catch up on all of the cards I wanted to get created this past week- and didn't!!!  First, is for last weeks Teapot recipient John, who is having health issues.  He lives close to water and loves sailing!

The DP from Paper Studio 'Spoke to me'...aka I thought it would be perfect as a backdrop for this image.  The image and the sentiment are by Impression Obsession, both are embossed using black EP.  I used Arteza art brushes and a white paint pen to add color. The corrugated border was swiped with gesso, and I also added Nuvo glimmmer paste over it.  I added Wink of Stella to the tips of the waves and the sun. 
 I grew up in a river town, the river was in our backyard, so we always had a boat.  So calm and peaceful out on the water!  I have only been on a sailboat once or twice though.....

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Thanks for stopping by

What a fabulous card Shelly - love the masculine look you have achieved. The texture the corrugated card gives is wonderful and complements the paper wonderfully
Stay safe
