You, Me, & the Sea...

Hiya!  I'm here today and on the Mint Owl Studio Blog sharing this sweet little distressed card using the new Beach Babes Stamp Set...




To create this card I started by masking off a ripped strip of post it note to separate my sky from my sea... I then used distress inks in the following colors: Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot for the sky.  I then removed the masking and used distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Salty Ocean.  The little boats were stamped and colored on separate card stock before being trimmed and popped up with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped with Versafine in Onyx Black.  Finally, I finished it all off with some "gold stars" using a gold gel pen.

I am linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge
and in Virginia's View Challenge: All About Colors

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!!

This is so pretty! Your inking is fantastic and I always forget about using a gold pen for stars and such. Great reminder, thanks!! I love the little scallops around your panel. Is that a die or the edge of the notecard? Great card!!
