{Spotlight Project} Becca Makes Waves

Rub a dub dub, three men in a tub 
and an adorable paper pieced boat. 
I'll make some waves 
with watery papes 
and pretend my vessel's afloat 

So... as you may have recently guessed, I'm far more of a papercraft artist than a poet. But I am going to talk to you about a paperpieced boat, so fair warning!

As with most designs I create, I started off with a swath of ink, splooshed across my craft mat.

Namely, I spritzed some Blueprint Sketch distress inks onto a Tim Holtz craft mat and then spritzed with a healthy dose of water (from a very painty bottle, you might notice - hey... I'm an artist, what can I say?)

I dipped my paper in the inky mess and beheld: WAVES! Or at least the beginnings of them. 

First I had to cut them out using the Stitched Snow Hills dies, which coincidentally aren't just for snowhills (CLEARLY!)

Next, I stamped the adooooorable little boaty McBoaterson (official name) from the Wanderlust stamp set. I adore this set and have used it for SO many things!

I fussy cut out the boat, and and paper pieced it together adding a sentiment from the same stamp set. I put it all together and VOILA! 

This might legitimately be my favorite card I have ever made. It' so adorbs and can be used for so many different things. 

Thanks for popping by all!
