Swirly Boat

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Things here have been craaaazy busy, but good. I held my retired product sale and new catty launch much fun! I love seeing people's reactions to the awesome new products. I have TONS of new projects to share with you this week..|I'm .having lots of fun with my new goodies!
Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps. I LOVE this many awesome possibilities:

Here is my take on it:

I have been wanting to make a boat card using the Swirly Bird set for a while now and this was the perfect opportunity! I stamped my boat in Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry and Real Red ink and then fussy cut it out. The sun is stamped in Crushed Curry with a little bit of Pumpkin Pie daubered around the edges.I layered the focal image on some Real Red card stock to pull in a bit more of the red...very nautical, no? I added some Crushed Curry card stock behind the matted focal image. The background Whisper White layer is embossed using the Softly Falling TIEF and is layered on a Dapper Denim card base.

To create the water, I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and die cut twice; once with Pacific Point card stock, and once with Marina Mist. Then I used the negative pieces from the Marina Mist one to fill in the spaces on the Pacific Point die-cut. I love the effect that creates. The sentiment is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set and is stamped in Dapper Denim ink. I added a little silver button (retired) and some Cherry Cobbler baker's twine.

On the inside I stamped the boat again but this time created the water using the spatter image from the Swirly Bird set. I stamped it in Marina Mist and Pacific Point ink several times along the bottom edge of the Whisper White panel. The sentiment is from the Endless Thanks stamp set and is stamped in Dapper Denim and Real Red ink.

Be sure the check out the rest of the Sunday Stamps design team's projects and then give this challenge a go. It is a fun sketch to work with! Have a super Sunday!
