The focal panel is made up of Bashful Blue cardstock (3-1/4 X 2-1/4) and Sage Shadow cardstock (2-1/4 X 7/8). CutterBee Scissors were used to cut the top edge of the sage paper to resemble grass, then the grass piece was attached to the blue panel using SNAIL Adhesive. The focal image is the treasure chest from the set "Ahoy Matey", and is stamped in Staz-On Black Ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I used Derwent Studio Colour Pencils, Minieral Spirits, and Blending Stumps to color the image, then cut it out using both scissors and a Hobby Blade. The cut out was added to the focal panel using Dimensionals, then the completed panel was added to the card base with the help of more Dimensionals. I stamped part of the sentiment ("you arrr" from "Ahoy Matey") in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet to get the placement correct, but I wrote the rest with a Brown Fine-Tipped Sharpie. So my handmade sentiment reads, " You ARRR My Treasure". Do you think my boys will like it? I sure hope so!
