CAS Sailboat

Please scroll down for my Pattie's Creations post for today.

Clean and Simple (one of my favorites) is this week's challenge from the Digi Makeover Challenge team.

You can't get much simpler than this, but it looks really good in person.  I've chosen the Sailboat from the Sailing By set by Paper Makeup Stamps.  Glossy accents was added to all the "wood" portions for a nice sheen.  I also printed the double sail twice so I could pop dot it for added dimension.  The boat itself is also pop dotted so it's not right up against the sun.  I like to try and use my "stuff" in different ways besides the obvious.  As I was looking at the Italian Flourish doily from Cheery Lynn Designs, I though it would make a pretty good sun shining behind the sailboat.  What do you think?

Now it's your turn to impress us with your CAS project.  The rules are on the Digi Makeover Challenge blog, but the main ones are you must use a digi and follow this week's theme.  If you use a Paper Makeup Stamps digi (and we love it when you do), the prize will be bigger.  Don't forget to see what the rest of the team has created to inspire you.

I'm also entering this in the Cheery Lynn Designs (use a doily) challenge for this week.

Copics used: E35, E37, E39    YR12, YR15, YR18, W10    BG23, BG34
