Direct to Paper technique

This card was made for the Challenge "Swipe On! Swipe Off!". It's basically a Direct to Paper technique where you apply your ink pad directly to the paper.
Ink pads used: VersaMagic dew drops (chalk ink)
Colors (as used from bottom to top of focal image):
  • Aegean Blue
  • Pixie Dust
  • Thatched Straw
  • Aspen Mist
Black paper was cut using Spellbinders Petite Ovals (largest size) and layered over the focal image. This layer set was cornered using some off-white brads and mounted with 3D dots on the blue layer.

I was in two minds to paper piece the sails but decided to leave it to make it look as if the boat is something of a dream. Hubby says it looks like a glass boat (he likes :D)

Boat image from GinaK Designs "Enjoy the Sunshine" stamp set.
