Sailing in Color

I have been working away on a scrapbook project when all of a sudden – my printer decides that it has problems.  sigh……  I hate when things don’t just work!  Hopefully it will at least let me print a few more pictures so I can show you my project tomorrow.  In the meantime, here’s two color variations on Sail Away.  The first uses Not Quite Navy, Real Red and Daffodil Delight.

The next uses Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and More Mustard.

On both cards I stamped the sail boat and then punched a Post It note with the 1 3/8 circle punch and sponged the color for the sun using a sponge dauber.  Then I stamped the sail again and popped it up.  On the Cherry Cobbler version I made”faux brads” by punching 1/4 circles of Cherry Cobbler and topping them with Crystal Effects.  The light coloring on the waves was done by pulling the color a bit with a blender pen. 

Here’s the inside.  The boat is stamped off once (though it’s still pretty dark and could have been stamped off again!)

Stamp sets – Sail Away, Grateful Greetings, Kind & Caring Thoughts (retired)
card stock – Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Nautical Expeditions, Whisper White
Ink – Not Quite Navy, More Mustard
Etc – Large Oval punch, Crystal Effects, sponge dauber, 1/4″ circle punch, blender pen

Have a great day and may all your technology work!  Back to the printer!  Hugs, Fran

  1. Just decided last week to get this set. Waiting for UPS. On the first card, I don’t recognize the DSP. I know what the second card DSP is. Thanks for sharing, so pretty, love it.
