... ok... I'm not really feelin' this one...
This card is just not jumping out at me... I don't know if it is the color combo, or the fact that I can't put much on the card front because the image is ginormous.
This one of the new Hostess Level A sets, from The Angel Company, and it really was fun to color and paper piece. I started off by creating the image panel without doing any other pre-planning layout-wise... which sometimes works, sometimes notsomuch :)
I used a craft knife to cut along the wave so I could sorta tuck the boat bottom behind it while popping up the top portion to give a bit of a shape to the boat. The water, oar & clothes are paper pieced.

Paper: Mia's Cottage SWIC & Cardstock, White UltraSmooth cardstock

Next time I make a card with this image, I plan to reverse-mask to create the sun first... it's buggin' me a bit that it isn't a perfect circle...
What do you think?
