Stampin Up Sail Away!
I am here to show you a card using some of my fabulous Christmas gifts I have been playing with and some old stash too! I was given this gorgeous 'Sail away' stamp by Stampin Up and just couldnt wait to use it! I was digging through my old art stash-I used to do a lot of art before I got into crafting and discovered some watercolour pencils I bought in France about eight years ago and thought they would be perfect to play with along with this image! I stamped the image with Stazon on watercolour paper and cut around this with a nestie. I coloured my image then activated this with water. I was really pleased with the look it gave me. I then chose the Tim Holtz distress paper because the swirls and patterns really looked like waves so worked perfectly with my image! I added some jute and buttons from my stash which I threaded with bakers twine to give the sewn look. I then added a 'Thinking of you' dome greeting.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
