Birthday Ahoy!

It's PMS time again, Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover Challenge time. This week we have an inspirational photo for you. It shows very nice nautical bedroom. I'd love to have some of those furniture to my room :o) The boat shape book self is really cool.

I decided to make something I haven't dried before - a shaped side step card. It was actually very easy :o) I wanted my card looks like a boat. I needed a wood like pattern paper and because I didn't had any, I made it my self in PhotoShop. I like how it turned out. Little windows are cut with Spellbinder Circles and I colored them with Letraset MetallicMarkers and added some drops of Glossy Accents to look like bolts. I found from my stash a little wooden anchor. It was white with blue outline anchor image on it. I colored it with Red Gold MetallicMarker to match my card. Sentiments are all computer generated.

"I look from the boat with telescope..."
On my card I used brand new digi stamp Eric, but if you are more into rubber you can buy him there. Act quick 'cause they have limited stock of rubber stamps. I flipped my Captain horizontally and re sized him. What's why I love digi stamps, I can play with it as I need :) Hi is colored with ProMarkers and I added some Glossy Accents to the badge on his hat and to the telescope class. 

Edges of wood pattern paper are distressed with scissors and Distress Ink. I made the card base from watercolor paper. I knew that it score lines turn out bit rough. It matches my old wood boat theme very nice. Small ship image inside is also from PMS, from their Sailing by Set. It is also colored with ProMarkers. I added some glitter to its water with Gelly Roll Star Dust pen.

"... how far your birthday is!"
I'd like to tell you my other source of inspiration. Soon I saw digi stamp with Eric I started to sing in my head "Ma vaatan paadist kiikriga kui kaugel on see Saaremaa..." - "I look from the boat with telescope how far is the Saaremaa" (Saaremaa is the biggest island in Estonia). So that's why the card looks like a boat and the sentiments are also inspired from this song.

Our guest designer this week is Anda. Go see her blog and say 'Hi' to her.  Also don't forget to visit all my team mates. I'm sure they give lots of inspiration to you.
