I've wanted to do this since I first saw the Boatloads set in the new catty -- perfect for an overseas move! It didn't take too long to color and was tons of fun to do! The only thing I forgot to do was to stamp "We've Moved!" in the top left corner.
I used blender pens on everything except the sky (sponged with Bashful Blue). I used the following colors with the blender pens: Artichoke, Thyme & Sahara Sand to make the cammo boat; Summer Sun mixed with Guava for the life preservers; Guava mixed with Pomegranate for the lamp; Guava & Rust for the wife's shirt; Really Rust, Caramel & Old Olive for the DH's shirt; Choc Chip for the puppy and chair; Going Grey for the anchor; Artichoke on the plant; Caramel on the box and flower pot; and Night of Navy for the water.
Whew! My desk is covered with ink pads!
The words were printed on Whisper White with a non-SU font called Kayleigh. I used punches on the cirlces and handcut the rest.

Thanks! This was so fun to do! I just wish I'd had it last year when friends of ours moved to Korea. They're now back home, and we're not moving anytime soon. So, it will be for display and I'll definitely make more for anyone moving overseas. ;)

Great job, bless your heart. I never had to deal with the moves my Mom raised me and my brother so there was no Army dad to go here and there with. I married an army son who was born in Japan and has lived almost everywhere. Now he has his feet planted in South Ga with NO intentions on moving again. Kinda Glad. Hate to move.
Wonderful job on the challenge and good luck with the relocation.
