City Crafter Challenge #56

I've always enjoyed the challenges at City Crafter Challenge Blog and unfortunately haven't had the time to participate in the past few weeks.  This week's challenge is to create something "By the Sea."   For this challenge, I chose one of my favorite Close To My Heart stamp sets called "Summer Breeze." 

I purposely chose a simple sketch to show off the sailboat.  The pattern paper is from a paper packet called Lucky and the card stock is Colonial White, Outdoor Denim, and Olive.  The inks colors include Outdoor Denim, Cocoa and Bamboo.  The sailboat is colored with my Copics...BG10, BG15, BG70, B000, B21, B23, E00, E07, C0, C1 and W2.

Thanks again to the gals at CCCB for inspiring me to play with my Copics this morning.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
