September Elemental Inspiration

Its Friday again and where did the summer go.  As its the first Friday of the month its elemental inspiration time at Daring Cardmakers.
Here is the lovely picture that Svenja our host picked for this week.

Don't forget to choose at least three elements from the picture.

I picked the boat, clouds, the sea and kraft card to represent the sand.

I am not an inky person so I was rather pleased to be able to create my own background.  I used two different shades of blue to create the sea and add a little bit of white ink to create some waves (which you can't see very well in the photo)

I then used some kraft card and tore the edges as I wanted to represent the sand.
This card is a little nod to my Dad who has fought so long using medication to keep his cancer in check but now he is needing chemotherapy.
So I like to think that this little boat is my Dad sailing in the big, wide sometimes rough ocean to reach his goal and kicking cancers butt.
I also think the sentiment is very true.
Love you Dad.


  1. Great card !!!!!
    Love the colors !

  2. Lovely card Dawn. Hope the chemo isn't too rough on your Dad but does all that it should. xxx

  3. Fabulous card Dawn, your inky background is stunning. I love the way you have described the boat- I do hope your Dad does kick cancers butt. Cathy x

  4. O really love this card, Dawn. Perfect for the situation without getting "mushy"

    I wish your dad all the very best for his treatment

  5. Lovely, lovely card, Dawn! (And, yes perfect for the situation. All the best to your dad.) I like your background, especially the different blues and the clouds who are just about visible.
