Sail Away

Have I introduced you to this sailing boat yet? I don’t think so, and yet I’ve been using it quite a lot recently. It’s from the very back of the Mini Catalogue, where you’ll find some really nice individual stamps – perfect for presents, for those getting started who don’t want to splash out on everything immediately and, of course, for those who just like the images.

I’m a sucker for all things nautical – before I became a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator I had an entire box devoted to seaside images, lighthouses, seagulls etc – so couldn’t resist this boat stamp.

This is a really simple card – just a bit of corrugating, some linen thread and a splash of red. I coloured the image – just the sails and the sea – with Watercolour Wonder™ crayons and a blender pen.

Stamps: Sail Away
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Night of Navy, Real Red, Basic Grey, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
