Last Thursday I showed you this piece that two of the granddaughters challenged me to use.  What do you see when you look at this piece?  Below is the 2nd card I did with it.

I had already cut away a corner of the 5" x 7" piece.  When I looked at the remaining portion of the colors, I turned the piece around and I saw a body of water and the lighter colored sky above.  There were two portions of white that bothered me so I trimmed it down further and added yellow with a Copic marker to represent the sun.  I used a white gel pen to add little waves in the water and already had a white sailboat in my "pieces".

Before adding the matted design to the card base, I cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece and embossed it with the waves folder. The folder is designed vertically.  I realized that if I matched up the design and ran it through a second time, I would be able to get it horizontally.

Thanks to granddaughters, Ashlyn and Taryn, I was able to get 3 cards out of this one piece.  I have the third one ready to go, but you're going to have to come back on December 12th to see it.  I'm using it on a birthday card for Ashlyn.  So be sure to come back.
