Digi Makeover Ch #51 - Inspirational photo

Hello, there!

This week our challenge at Digi Makeover blog is an Inspirational Photo: Nautical bedroom.
And today we have a guest designer: Anda (Flying Fresian), so welcome and visit her blog.

You'll see I made two cards this week, the first one has a nautical image and the same colors as our picture... I used the set "Sailing by" .

And the second one, has the colors from this photo and of course the male factor too.... For this one, "Color kid - Beyond measure".

Why? You ask me... Well, I wasn´t to happy with the first one and try to do it better, and finally I am posting both of them, hehehe... Both of them are colored with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils.

For the first card I used kraft paper as background, then I used blue, sky-blue and red cardstock. I cut the image and its mat with Sizzix circle dies. As embellishments, I used two other images from the same set, add some blue glitter to the anchor (I used foami tape for it), and the special cord is some recycled cord from a blind that broke and I saved it because I thought could be great as embellishment (...what do you think of it?)....

For the second card, I used blue, sky-blue and red cardstock, some blue gingham dp from Folia. As embellishment I used a red ribbon with white edgie stitches and blue cold porcelaine stars in two different sizes.
