Just Sailing By

Evening peeps. 
Just popping by again to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at ATSM.
Here's my card for your inspiration for this week's theme of -


I used the sketch at AAA as my inspiration with the addition of the one at LIM.

I cut three strips of white card and then using a 1" circle punch, cut into each to make the waves. Once cut, inked them in DOx in Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers adding some white gel pen to the crests and glued them together. On a scrap of white card, I stamped the MFT ship, used Copics to colour then fussy cutting it out and slipping it between the first two layers. To create a sense of movement I added a few suggested waves with the same gel pen. 
The sentiment was printed out using the computer and then the wave panel was trimmed down to size and added to the top half.
So that's that, but for more CAS inspiration and an explanation of what we are looking for check out the ATSM blog here.
