On the Sea

Here’s another Summer Mini sneak peek – On the Sea. I had a piece of faux barn board from some previous cards and thought this technique would go great with this set. 

The ship is stamped with Stazon on watercolor paper and colored with reinkers and an aquapainter. 

Note – my barn board was too light so I took some Early Espresso and gently wiped it over the paper to darken it up a bit.  On a “do over” I would use a darker color reinker.

  1. Fran, I love these nautical cards, especially the raised sail on the sail boat. Absolutely lovely cards!
