I had great fun making my card which mainly uses the sketch but also brings in the navy and white color scheme from the photo.
My background panel was made using a technique that I first learned over 10 years ago. I made up some panels using the technique and found them a few months ago. But I couldn't remember how I made them. I could only remember I found the technique in one of my mother's stamping magazines. So off to mum's I went and her and I searched and searched until I found the article. I decided to work with materials I had on hand and came up with this panel which I over-stamped with the Papillon stamp set by Tim Holtz.
This started out as a piece of plan black cardstock and I layered over it using metallic and various blue Distress Paints. With the aid of water and a credit card, I ended up with this look. I did film the process which you can see below or over on YouTube. Apologies for the squeaky chair at the beginning - I narrated as I created, so no voiceovers.
I'm linking this up to Addicted to Stamps and More who have an Anything Goes challenge this week.
