Good morning friends! We have a new TCP Tuesday challenge this week from our Hipster Hostess Susan! She wants us to use any TCP stamp with wings (and yes, we're letting penguins qualify for this one! *wink*)! Lots of choices, but since I knew I was going to use Jen's August Sketch For You To Try the set that came to mind for me was Ship Happens - I love the cute little trio of penguins in their teacup boat!
I think I've done this before but I used the awesome, real Birch Veneer Paper from the The Cat's Pajamas store to piece the "boat". This wood paper is so easy to use, it cuts very nicely and since it's very light in color you can use markers to make it any shade you'd like!
The sketch just seemed perfect with that main panel tilted, it screamed for waves! :) The Wave CutUps die is one of my favs! (Do I say that a lot??) The patterned paper is Echo Park Splash and was a no-brainer too! The super cute little sentiment was from another TCP set, Whale of a Time! I also had a chance to make one of my favorite little sailor's knots with Orange Divine Twine, so much fun!
Visit Alma's blog for the details and to sign the guestbook once you've finished your project - we loving seeing what you come up with!! While you're at it, come chat with us in the TCP Forum on Splitcoaststampers!
One more thing, when I was feeling yucky all day Sunday from some strange, but thankfully only 24-hour bug, Emma decided to help me with my design team duties and made this adorable card for the challenge!! Isn't she great! :)
