It’s Virtual Stamp Night! And time for my VSN Challenge. The theme for this VSN is Fantasy Worlds and I’m looking for cards that represent my favorite Fantasy World – Narnia. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was always my favorite book in the series. I told myself I was going to choose a different book, because I’ve already made a Dawn Treader inspired card for a Teapot Tuesday challenge years ago (that card was just nautical). Alas, I couldn’t talk myself out of the Dawn Treader, so here is The Dawn Treader as a pirate ship. It’s a card for a coworker that just had a baby boy. I thought this “Adventure Awaits” sentiment was perfect for what they have in store for them. Lots of exciting adventures.
I didn’t want my ship to be a pirate ship, but I was too lazy to change the Jolly Roger flag. I also wanted a mouse on the ship and now that I look at it I realize I could have added a mouse (duh), but it’s fine. Reepicheep the mouse was my favorite character in the book. I die cut glittery water and glitter islands. In this scene The Dawn Treader is sailing away from The Lone Islands into uncharted territory. Adventure awaits!
I made two of these cards at the same time, as I usually do. Set my stopwatch for the one hour time limit and finished them with about 25 seconds to spare. You should have seen me fumbling with the paper of the action wobbles trying to get the ship stuck down in time. LOL!
Come on and play along! Don’t worry if you’ve never read the Chronicles of Narnia–there’s plenty of inspiration in just the titles of the books!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
