Smooth Sailing



Wishing everyone a Happy June!  This month's Doodle Pantry release has some wonderful summer sets, including ones that are perfect for creating patriotic and masculine projects.  All sets in this June release are 25% off from June 1 thru June 4 only.

Today, I have a Father's Day card to share using an image from the Smooth Sailing & Map set.  The starting point of my design was inspired by a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday created in 2013.  The focal point is the wonderful sailboat from Smooth Sailing... I used the outline image from the set which I paper-pieced and colored with the help of Photoshop.  Other Doodle Pantry sets used were digi papers from the Bold Summer Digital Paper Pack and Grunge Wood Mini Digi Paper 4 Pack.  The sentiment is from another set from this month's release, Gone Fishing.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge (PWC312) -- Father's Day/Masculine Cards
Polkadoodles Challenge Wk 22 -- Men on our Minds (create anything for the men/boys in our life)
Simply Create Too -- Father's Day (or for a male)
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #196 -- Crazy Egg (anything goes)
Delightful Weekly Challenge May 28 -- It a Guy Thing (masculine cards)
Allsorts Week 261 -- For the Guys

A new Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #47 starts today at noon and ends on June 24.  For this month's challenge, Laurie has changed things up a bit -- this month the challenge theme is Make it Manly.  You may use any company's DIGITAl image. No featured digi this month; instead there will be 3 randomly selected winners, chosen from all participants, who will receive  coupons to the Doodle Pantry store.   Challenge details can be found on the Doodle Pantry Challenge Blog.  Sure hope you join in the fun!  

Have a great day and thanks so much for your visit!

  7. This is lovely. I love the paper-pieced sails and the pops of red on your card. And I'm pretty impressed that you can paper-piece via computer program. I have to do it the old fashioned way with scissors! Great job Pat!!
