Paddle Your Own Canoe

Hi everyone.  I have a masculine birthday card to share today made using two of the stamps from a set by Hunkydory which came free with Creative Stamping Magazine, a background scene, and the canoe.



I watercoloured the scene using some Staedtler Watercolour Brush Pens.  I prefer to keep the colours softer by adding more water with them, so I scribble some on my glass mat and pick it up with the waterbrush.  I started by stamping using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink, which I also used for the sentiment, but this was also heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.  I added the line from the boat to the shore as I thought it looked a bit odd adrift without anyone in it.

Thank you for visiting the blog today and I'll see you again soon.






I am entering the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations September Challenge - The Great Outdoors.
Allsorts Challenge - Week 588 Use A Hand Coloured Image.
The Paper Players Challenge - No. 507 Masculine Birthday.
The Male Room Challenge - No. 142 Travel.

Pat, the scene you've created is absolutely gorgeous and a terrific masculine card. I sure wish I was there enjoying a boat ride on that river! Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Paper Players this week!

That is a lovely scene you've created, loving the subtle colouring. Something I miss is being able to browse the craft magazines in the newsagents but of course if I don't see them I'm not tempted so maybe just as well.

How very tranquil your scene looks Pat and makes for a great masculine Birthday card (but worried when the boatman is - gone for a swim maybe!). A perfect card for our 'Great Outdoors' theme at Stamping Sensations and also our colouring theme at Allsorts, thanks so much for joining in at both.

Great scene Pat - am loving these stamps - one of the better freebies!
Your colouring is amazing - I have some Arteza waterbrush pens and have struggled with them so will try the glass mat and water option and see if it makes my colouring any better! x

What a wonderful scene - you're right that adding the line from boat to shore finishes it perfectly.
