You Float My Boat - MFTWSC216
I had another great weekend with some stamping time… I’m so grateful that my family doesn’t mind when I head off to my stamp room for some art therapy!
The weekly sketch #216 from My Favorite Things was calling my name, so here’s what I came up with…
I had a lot of fun creating this card! I used a Lemon Chiffon card stock base (ooh, I think that’s my new favorite of all the new colors from MFT!) The upper half of the background panel is Sno Cone card stock, and I used my Cloudy Day stencil to emboss some clouds on it, then left the stencil in place and sponged some Sweet Tooth pigment ink onto the clouds. The lower half of the panel is Berrylicious card stock, and I die cut the edge with the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-Namics. Using some Blu Raspberry dye ink refill and water in a mini-mister, I used the Waves stencil to add some waves to the lower panel. The sentiment was stamped in Nightshift Blue hybrid ink, and comes from the Sailor Girl Pure Innocence stamp set. For my sailboat, I used Cherry Crisp card stock, and the sails were cut from Sweet Tooth card stock. On the sails I used the BG Linen background stamp with Sweet Tooth pigment ink, and heat embossed for some texture.
On the inside, I added a Berrylicious card stock anchor from Sea Charms Die-Namics, and a sentiment from DC Go Overboard stamped in Cherry Crisp hybrid ink.
I hope you had a weekend that was as enjoyable as mine! Thank you for visiting my blog today!
