Seeing I had a bit of spare time, I decided to make this card for Mel's Salted background technique challenge. I have very few Stampin' Up! reinkers but Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Pretty in Pink seemed to work well together. Mel, I hope you like it!!

The image from the Seaworthy set is stamped and black embossed and the sails on this yacht are transparent LOL. I just went over them with a yellow marker for a bit of contrast!

The punched photo corner and the strip are SU Apricot Appeal card which has been run through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The background card is Bordering Blue.

Happiness from the SU set Warm Words is stamped with Blue Bayou - aren't all the blue shades so nice?

Now I really have to make a card using the other boat in this Seaworthy set - will have to get the thinking cap on again!

Wow. That card looks fantastic. I too have never heard of the technique, perhaps we can have some tips on this in the future.
