Boys and their Toys Day 3

What a wide range of topics can be covered by this title - Sports, Gardening, Hobbies, and just relaxing.   All can relate back to Boys and their Toys.

This is my interpretation of the subject:-

This is what I have used:-
Dreamweaver Stencil - LG755 Sailboat
White card
Black card
Low Tack Tape
Pigma black micron pen 0.05
White and black glaze gelly roll pens
Metallic green and bronze gelly roll pens
Pale blue pen
Black base card

This is what I did:-

1 Take a piece of white card and attach the stencil to it with Low Tack Tape and using the black micron pen draw the design through the stencil.

2 Complete all the stentangle designs on the sails and the hull of the sailboat, any areas of the sea colour with black.

3 Take the green metallic pen and colour the land / shore line and then take the bronze metallic pen and colour the hull of the boat lightly.

4 Trim this panel down to the required size, do faux stitching around the edge of the piece using the black glaze pen.

5 Cut a black matt and stick the front panel on to it.  Once attached do faux stitching around the edge of the black matt with the white glaze pen.  (You may find that the white pen doesn't appear very white at first but as it drys the white becomes more apparent.)

6 Cut a white matt and layer all pieces on to the black base card.

7 Take the blue pen/marker and randomly follow the lines and areas of black in the sea.  this will give a slight hint of the sea.

There you have it a quite an expensive toy which does take a little bit longer with the stentangle patterns.  I'm sure this could be suitable for birthdays, Fathers day and for male relatives and friends.

If you are in the UK or Europe and would like to purchase any of the products for the above projects they are all available from The Stampman or your local Woodware Stockist.

Hope you like the card.  Thanks for stopping by.
