Sailboat and Sailor's Knot



I know, I know....JustRite Week ended at Stamper's Dream but I just HAD to play with these By the Sea stamps again. I love them! I also wanted to make another sailor's knot...so fun. The DP is Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk. Oh, and that brown spot on the yarn is not an ink spot (looks like it though)....the yarn I picked up is mostly off-white with random spots of browns, tan, and rust. That spot you see is just part of the yarn I picked out. Anyhoo.....the sailboat was stamped on vintage cream CS in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and I added some Waterfall Stickles to the water.

To all the moms out there, happy Mother's Day!
