This is for today's F4A to use browns & blues. There is a wonderful man at my church who just makes your day complete. His birthday will be while I'm recovering from knee surgery, so this will be all ready to mail to him.
I masked off & brayered the sea & sky. I hope the bow & button will be OK for a man card. I used some pearl cotton embroidery thread I found today!
The base card is Soft Suede.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

This is gorgeous! Yes, the embroidery floss and button look appropriate for a man's card - they echo the color of the sea and sky and have a nice organic feel. You have inspired me to pull this stamp out of my stash...it's never seen ink! Best wishes to you on your upcoming knee surgery. Been there, done that and it was so worth it. Blessings!

Absolutely breathtaking...I feel like I'm on that sail boat sailing into the sunset!!! I love how you added the color darker at the bottom and gradually lighter at the top to represent water and sky...such a genius design detail!!!! Good luck with your knee surgery...I will be having a knee replacement in a month or two...we will have to compare notes...LOL!!!
