Pile It On! Challenge - Transportation

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today, where the theme is:

'Transportation'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Dr Digi's House of Stamps:
Prize - 2 Digi Stamps of the Winner's Choice!

I went with a sail boat as my method of transportation...and used a cute Penny Black image simply called 'Fishing!', which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to the sea using a Wink of Stella pen. I used snippets of papers from the 'Prince Charming' pad by Recollections/Michaels (found at TK Maxx). ..I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamps are from the 'Birthday Buddies' set by Paper Smooches/


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
Fore more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
