Ahoy There

Morning! hope your all well! Im here this morning with a post for The Paper Nest Dolls :)
It feels like so long ago since I did a blog post for over there :)  So Im here to share with you today something a bit different for me…. not my normal card or attempt at scrapbooking or SMASH*ing…. But something a bit more special :) 

Please le me introduce to you 



He is just so cute and I love him to bits! Do you like the shape?? 
Its from the fantastic Sandra's Scrap Shop and cut on my cameo.  
I was somewhat nervous at first with making this card up - but it was so easy to make! 


I coloured him up with copics;

E000, E00, E02, R20
B93, B95
C1, C2
Y15


The paper is a 12x12 that I have had in my stash for ages, I used both sides of the paper on this creation.  I distressed the edges of my circle card with Tim Holtz xxxx


I think the hardest part of this creation was the embellishing - the whole thing is about 8'' - its been a long time since I have made something this big! Its a good job I had all the fantastic flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts


I had to use the cameo even more on this creation - I just fell in love with one of the 'Nautical' sets on the SIL store.  This little guy is just 1' tall and look at all that detail.  I added the cheesecloth behind to look like fishing net :) 


I added loads of charms too! all on some twine for more of a nautical look - Well I hope you like him! I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges; 

613 Avenue - Anything Goes (Twist of Friendship - It has been made for a friends new boat)
