MTME Pretty Patterns #67

** Please scroll down for the Delightful Challenges post **

Hi again,

Here's my 2nd post for the day - there is a beautiful MTME Pretty Pattern up just waiting to be played with!  I really went out on a limb, too, using these images is so out of my comfort zone.... I think it turned out pretty OK.

I did change the orientation a bit, but I am still very happy with my results.  I'm not a sailboat kinda gal, but like I said, the results weren't bad at all.  The set I used is Seas the Day in digi format.  I was pretty easy to piece together before I printed it.  I did pre-color the sails using Gimp (my first try at using this program) and the used my Copics to shade the boat.  I then cropped a part of a sentiment from Seas the Sentiments for the  side element and then the entire sentiment is printed on the inside (not pictured).  I also tried my hand at faux embossing with inks - not the most successful but it still looks pretty cool.

Please, come by the MTME blog to play along with us!
