CDS Sneek Peek - Sails, Subs and Tugs

I love this set! It's called Sails, Subs and Tugs and was mostly inspired by some of the toys that my kid's play with in the bath tub. I am always on the look out for little boy sets so I decided to create a couple of my own this month ;) With living on an Island, my kids love to visit the waterfront with all the boats and anything that floats is always popular with little boys! lol

I watercoloured the Tug with my Tombow Markers and Aqua painter and then popped parts of it up on dimensionals. I then watercoloured the ocean and sky with some of my SU re-inkers and added some sponging and Liquid Applique to finish of the main image.

If you look close enough you can see that I played around and made some waves with my designer paper and did this using my slit punch. I also embossed and layered them on top of each other and then sewed them to a larger panel to create a little back drop with these gorgeous Cosmo Cricket DP's.

Be sure to hop around on the Design Team's blogs below so that you don't miss any of the sneak peek goodness! Don't forget to pop back in here tomorrow to see what other goodies we have for you :)
