Card and Stitching Updates

I made this card at a friends house on Thursday.  We used the polished stone technique.  You can find a tutorial at splitcoaststampers on this technique.  You use reinkers and alcohol on glossy cardstock.  The base of the card is not quite navy by SU, the mat is Baja Breeze, and the reinkers used are Baja Breeze and Bashful blue for the sky behind the sailboat.  The stamp set is Winds of Grace by SU.  We used the polished stone technique on the background and then stamped the ship on it. 



I also over the last few weeks did a tiny bit more stitching on my memorial piece.  I need to redo some of the lettering and get it centered and straight.  The writing will read William Alan on the first line and Steinmeyer on the second then below that 06/07/67 to 06/02/2008.  I hope its not to girly or feminine for the recipient. 


Well I better get back to school and Laundry for the night.
