Whiff Of Joy - Henry Sparrow!.

Good morning!! Today I am sharing my 2nd post for Whiff of Joy for January!!  Today I have used Henry Sparrow! I love him!! Be sure you visit the Whiff of Joy shop!! There are some excellent digital images there!! And stay tuned for the new release in February :)

Here he is!! Isn't he cute! So, I colored the image with my Copic Markers. I added some twine and the metal rings. And.. Okay.. I'm kind of ridiculous like this LOL, but I wanted it to be truly nautical.. so I went and learned how to tie a nautical knot and tied that to each of the metal rings. LOL I know.. I'm special sometimes o.0  LOL!!  I added the cheesecloth behind the die cut image. I dyed it with one of my sprays. The edges of the kraft paper are torn and inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and sprayed with a little bit of brown ink. I also added a bit of ink on the inside of the kraft paper to add that dirty/old look. I added the sewing around the edge on the inside and out. I also added some Aged Marine  and Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel around the edges of the die cut image. I added the compass charm and I filled up the little bottle with sand and a rolled up piece of paper. The "Thanks Matey!" sentiment was hand drawn by me. I also added the sticker on the inside to add a little bit to it. I think that it is.. other than the image is decoupaged.. of course :)  It was really hard to get good photos of the dimension on it. The bottom of the boat is flush and I popped the upper part of it to give it an actual boat dimension. I also popped the one edge of the flag to make it look like it is flying... the hands around the pole and the closer foot and the waves are layered as well. I wish the pictures would have come out better for the dimension, but that is as good as I could get it. I hope you enjoy!!

Not crazy...that's something I would do...researching how to tie the knots correctly. It's all of those fabulous little details that make this such a wonderful card. Each time I look I see something else that makes me smile. Again, thanks for joining our Anything Goes/I see Fluffy challenge this fortnight at Craftitude Challenges. You are 3 for 3 in my books :)
