DS4J challenge # 53....Anything goes, with a twist.bonus

Good morning friends,
Yay!, Wednesday halfway through the week, hope it has been a good one so far.
The new challenge over at Digistamps 4 Joy has started and our theme is ....
ANYTHING GOES! … but with a masculine twist bonus

Enter your projects (there’s a limit to 3 per crafter), for a chance to win  3 images of your choice from the store.
The BONUS is that if your papercraft project is suitable for a man, you will also go into a separate random draw for ANOTHER 3 images from the store!
As usual, if you use a DS4J image on your project, you will get the chance to win a $10 voucher to spend in the store.......So how great is that.....so much to win.

 One would think that with so many men in my family, (DH, 4 sons, 5 grandsons) it shouldn't be a problem, but always the dilema...what image to use. This time it wasn't much of a challenge, as my card was made for my grandson Joshua in the Netherlands. Last year he started playing canoe polo and this image..Canoeist...was the closest I could get.

 
I coloured the image with a combination of distress inks, pencils and used some liquid snow to create the white on the waves. Cut it out with an X-cut die.
Stamped and embossed the Sentiment and cut the letters for Joshua with my Cricut.
Finished off with twine and a button.
I used the sketch at the Outlawz Wednesday sketch challenge as an idea.
 
 
These are some challenges I am going to enter:
 
Deep Ocean challenge #36...Anything goes
Card Mania challenge #5...Happy Birthday
Make it Monday..#111.Anything goes
My craft spot #73...Emboss it.
Tammy's Scrappin Corner  #32 Anything goes
Simply Create..Linky Party #6
 
 
I hope to see you all over at the DS4J blog with some awesome creations. Take care, see you back here soon.
 
Love, Ursula

Like the water coloring & sparkle. Was watching a show here called The Doctors and they had a segment on women that had Breast Cancer and overcoming their fears by white water rafting. I've never been rafting of this kind. I do like sailing & being on a boat; especially whale watching.
