you float my boat

Today is the new Cute Card Challenge up!! The theme is "in the water". We had an amazing response last week. Thanks to all who love to play along.

First i airbrushed the sky with Copic" cream yellow" than added to the bottom some blue. After i adhered the boat i layered one line as shadow underneath the boat with a blue marker. I cut all the cattails out and in half so i could use the parts to frame my image. The boat was a to high, so i cut one "panel of wood" off. This way the boad sits deeper in the water and Tilda can have her feet in hanging in the water. There are some "water drops" arround her feet, too :-) I glued to the cattails and the sandcastle some brown glitter. I really love how Lim uses glitter and sparkle on her cards! Check it out!
The sentiment.. :-) i am not sure... i have found it in the Stampin up Catalog in a boat set.. there was also "friend-ship" i might replace the current one with friendship.
Stamps: The stamps are all from the Magnolia Summer & Sea Collection
Paper/CS: Desinger Paper Cloud 9 Designs, Green Celery,
Ribbons: all Stampin up
Embellishments: Stickles and Martha Stewart glitter
Coloring: Copics
Please check out the other Designers work. Everybody came up with some fabulous ideas for this Challenge!

WOW Claudia another beautiful scene. I just came from the beach with my mom. We went today for 2 hours. Was wonderful. Now I found your card and Tilda look so relax too. The water looks warm and beautiful. Good idea about the boat. The lighthouse and the cattails looks amazing. Great coloring as always and beautiful and stunning scene.
