Wooden Sailboat

This birthday card was inspired by a technique that I saw Gina K. use in one of her videos, "Woodgrained Focal Image."  I love her videos and techniques.


I didn't have the same inks she had, so I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks:
Old Paper for the focal image background.
Walnut Stain for the boat image.
Old paper, Walnut Stain, and Frayed Burlap for the card background.
I used some homemade washi tape (same inks on masking tape) for the left side of the card.
The sailboat stamp is from Martha Stewart's Clear Toy Transportation Stamps.

The layout of this card was inspired by Seize the Birthday #10 challenge - Masculine Birthday.

There you have it.  What inspires you to create?
