Let's Rock with the Daring Cardmakers

This week Kathy has set us this dare:

It's Kathy here with this week's new challenge:
Rocking All Over the World
This week I'd like you to make a Wobble Card - these are cards which have a curved base so that when you tap them they rock, or wobble from side to side.
Now what you put on your card is up to you, BUT if you're up for a bit more of a challenge, how about adding something of a pun, and giving your card a "rocking" theme too?
And this is the card I've come up with this week,

I wanted to make a little rocking boat on the ocean. I started making the base card with the rounded base and then cut out the wave bits from card and then covered them with felt and glued them on top of the card. I then thought it needed more texture to get across more feeling of movement so I added more pieces of fabric and papers and then stitched with the sewing machine all over the top. I had to cut my card up and make another base card though so I could cover over the stitching at the back, I just used more of the same colour card glued it over the back and then re-cut it out. The little boat I made with washi tapes and deco tapes and used fabric for the sails. The pirate flag is just a bit of deco tape wrapped around a pin that I popped down the middle.
Are you ready to rock? Join in with this weeks challenge and we'll come over to your blog and take a peek! http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/2011/06/lets-rock.html
