|Working Narrow Boat "Aquarius"|
For those of you who saw my canal boat card yesterday on WOYWW, I thought you might like to see the original photo from which I took my traced image to add to my Clarity stamps.

The hardest part, once the tracing was done, was to stick to what I could actually see on the photo and not to add in the things I could not see, but know are there. For example, I know there is some beautiful sign writing on the side of the tiny living quarters, which is just not visible due to the angle of the photo. The size of the card also limited the amount of detail that could be fitted in.
