Let Your Dreams Set Sail

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose one of the color schemes from 100 Brilliant Color Combinations.....I loved the colors of number 33, Fun and Tropical.  These colors were perfect for a sailboat and sunset scene.  For my card, I started with the North Coast Creations set, 'Sail Away'; the image and sentiment were stamped on a white rectangle cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Double Stitched Rectangles' Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom 'Rectangles' Dies.  The clouds, boat, sails, and touches of waves were coated with a clear glaze pen, which acted as a resist as I sponged the background colors.  I left the white rectangle panel inside of the die while sponging to protect the white edge.  Paper piercing was added at the last......I messed up and had to fix it by piercing a double row, then added faux stitching.  This card is proof that I should not stamp when I'm under the weather! ;) The card base was stamped with the ODBD 'Fishing Net Background' stamp. Baker's twine was added as the only embellishment.

Angie, your card is so beautiful. I love the soft sponging on your pretty scene. It really gives it a serene look.

I hope you feel better soon.
