This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is an inspirational challenge.
So immediately I thought nautical…
However (and to my shock) I don’t have any nautical stamps!
Although this has since been corrected as I bought the Sea of Textures Bundle yesterday 😉
So I decided to create a watercolor background inspired by the colors and look of the image. My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.
I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and used an Aqua Painter to make it very wet. I then used the Aqua Painter to pick up ink which I squeezed over the paper. The tinted water naturally pooled and then I dried it using a Heat Tool. I did one color at a time so this created different shades of each color.
I did this using Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, and Pool Party ink. I ran this through the Big Shot in the Seaside embossing folder and then matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.
I created my sailboat using the Swirly Bird stamp set, which I fussy cut out and adhered using Stampin Dimensionals. I used Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, and Pool Party ink. Behind the sailboat I adhered some burlap ribbon and then I stamped the sentiment from the Cake Soiree stamp set in Night of Navy.
