Addicted to CAS ~ Challenge #225

Hi Crafty Friends! We have a new challenge for you at Addicted to CAS

Isn't "NAUTICAL" a great code word? It certainly made me think. I looked through my stamps to see if I had anything that would work. I found a Lawn Fawn stamp set called Float My Boat. Here's my card

I stamped the sailboat with Gina K's Soft Stone ink on a scrap of white cardstock. I fussy cut it out. I found some striped patterned paper and stamped the sailboat on it, again with Gina K's Soft Stone ink and fussy cut the sails. I glued the sails to the original sailboat on the white cardstock. For the waves, I used one of Sizzix - Stephanie Barnard's Border dies and some blue cardstock. To add a bit of dimension to the waves, I ink blended using blueprint sketch and salty ocean distress inks, added with an oval ink blending brush. I adhered the waves to a light blue A2 card panel and tucked the sailboat behind the waves. For the sentiment, I used the same stamp set and again with Gina K's Soft Stone ink, stamped the sentiment near the bottom of my card. I adhered the card panel to a white A2 card base to complete my card.

We'd love to see your "NAUTICAL" creations in our gallery.
