sea you later...

Hey there!  Hope you are having a great week so far.  Rosemary here with a card sharing another new die set, as well as a die from the Mini Slim Backdrop die set.   A few years ago Jillian came out with the Anchors Aweigh die set that worked with Simply Said: Anchor stamp set.  She decided to up date the Anchors Aweigh die set and I am using dies from that set on my card.  I also used the You Are My Anchor stamp set. 


Recently I have been playing around with alcohol inks and created several backgrounds that I turned into cards.  I had one background that I tried to do the alcohol lift technique with and it didn't work out.  I thought I wouldn't be able to use the background for anything else, but then remembered that it is alcohol ink and if you just add a little blender solution you can create a whole new background!  So I did.  There were spots where the blender solution and additional alcohol ink that I added had pooled and when it was still a little sticky I added bits of silver foil here and there.   You can see there areas of foiling in the photo, but it looks soo pretty in real life.  I die cut the background with a Stitched Dot In and Out Circle die trying to catch as much of the foiling as I could.  I then used the wave dies from the Anchors Aweigh 2.0 die set to my waves from other portions of that background.  I die cut the little sailboat from dark teal and white cardstock, trimmed out just the sail portion on the white die cut and adhered it to the teal boat.  I then adhered the boat to the circle and added the waves.  I embossed the same teal cardstock I used for the boat with a woodgrain embossing folder to give the look of waves.  That was adhered across the white panel that was die cut with one of the Mini Slim Backdrop dies and then I stamped the sentiment in dark teal.  The circle element was added along with the anchor that I die cut from silver cardstock.  To give the card a more finished look I die cut light blue cardstock with the largest rectangle backdrop die, adhered that and then popped up the white panel.  I used the sketch from Fab Friday for my card so I will be adding it to their challenge gallery.

Nice use of the sketch and great colors! The alcohol ink swirl and foiling on the circle are fantastic and give your boat a fun sky to sail off into! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
