This is my card:
I've not EVER had a hankering to climb onto a cruise ship... maybe because I don't know how to swim... maybe cause I watched Titanic 100 times... but I just don't. :) lol So... I can only "Ema-gine"... and my "Ema-gination" ran wild with this one! lol I colored the image with Copic markers. I used a gel pen to dot the night sky with stars. I assume the only time you'd really look out your porthole window is when you are going to bed because if you're on a cruise ship... why would you be in there during the day? That's my thinking... just saying... I also used the gel pen to color in the "screws" on the porthole. I "Ema-gined" rich paneled walls and heavy velvet drapes. hahaha... too much Titanic! lol The background paper is Douglas Fir wood paper from McMahon Five Design. I used a gold cord I found in my stash to mimic what I "Ema-gine" drew up the shades. I have some deep red faux suede paper but for the life of me... I cannot find it. I was gonna do something totally different with it but I surprised myself with this find and then couldn't let it go! :-\ lol I'll find the faux suede paper later tonight... when I am looking for something else. :-\ Ugh! The sentiment is from A Piece of Heart. So there you have it. I like how it came out... not quite how I "Ema-gined" but it works for me. :)
