I was so pleased with my plan for this card which meant I'd actually have the right thing for Dad next year, but when I put it all together..... well, it doesn't really do what I wanted. So I'll put it on the bottom of the learning curve, and maybe I'll stick to black and white instead!!
Cant give many specifics about the DP I used because I was really clever and cut off the label, but the side I DIDN'T use is shades of sepia with faded images of ropes and compasses, and the other side is this old blue-print style with ships' plans all over it. My Dad is one of those Wind in the Willows "messing about in boats" sort of man, so the paper is just his style. The boat is layered on two shades of blue CS along with a length of sea-blue satin ribbon. The cogs are from the SU Sense of Time set, embossed with hologram dust. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n' Sassy.
It could have been better, but now I've run out of blue!
