Sailing, Sailing, Over the Waves We Go!


Hello!  Back with another post today for the start of a new challenge over at Inkspirational based on the Photo below.  


I was most excited when I saw the Photo Inkspiration as I love all things nautical.  (My husband is a sailor!)  For my card, I chose to work with these gorgeous images from Paper Artsy.  The background was created by smooshing various Distress Inks on a Craft Mat, spritzing with water and dragging my card stock through it.  The images were stamped onto more card stock, water colored with Distress Markers and the edges distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  A metal charm, bits of dark blue burlap string and some Copper Liquid Pearls and my card is complete.  I encourage you to pop over to Inkspirational to see what the rest of the design team has come up with and then I hope you will submit a project of your own.  Our sponsor for the month of June is Milk 'N Coffee and one lucky submitter will win three Digis.  Thanks for dropping by.  Yvonne
