Plain Sailing

I’ve really struggled to make a card this last week or so, you get times like that don’t you? life gets so busy and on top of the hustle and bustle of life we nearly have Christmas upon us.

I was lucky enough to get the cold that has been doing it’s round and I still have the hacking cough to prove it, you know the type, the one that waits until you have warmed up in bed then starts until you are so hot and bothered from coughing that you fling the blankets off only to freeze your nads off later. Hey Ho.

So I needed something to ease me back into colouring and this ticked all of the boxes.

Galleon from Just Inklined it is a pencil lined digital stamp and the beauty of this is that the shading in the stamp helps immensely when colouring, it makes it so easy to colour.

I coloured this one with Copic markers as I only have a limited palette in Graph’It although I will add more to my range because I love them.

I used chalk pencils to create the sky.

Clean and simple style with a little bit of designer paper and a button and hemp cord.

Fabulous coloring again here JAk. It´s absolutely stunning and feels totally like watching it for real. Amazing work hun.
Hope you´ll feel much better very soon, as it´s really devastating to keep coughing like this all the time.

This is just stunning.. I wish I created a card like this when I am struggling!! Seriously beautiful and so great for so many occasions, masculine, trip abroad, sympathy.. I will be buying this one! Feel better Jak. I had to laugh when you described the cough... had the same experience... waited until I got to bed and between feeling like crap and the hot sweats, I wanted to rip my hair out.. I am trying not to let the holidays get me crazy but I know they can be stressful. Feel better and just a beautiful card! xxx Ann Marie
