Another Seaworthy!

I have had this image finished for a while, just had to decide how to finish it off! I keep going back to this yacht stamp - just must start using the other two stamps in the set! Soft Sky and Blue Bayou have been brayered on over the yacht which I used the crayon resist technique on. It would have been better if I had have used a cloud template and sponged clouds for the sky - next time!!

The spotted paper comes from the SU Spring Break Designer Series Paper. It is beautiful! The reverse side of this paper actually looked quite good with the image too. The scalloped edge was made with the slit punch and the wording comes from Its Your Birthday set.

I am so glad I bought this set as I struggle with making masculine themed cards and this set is so ideal and so many ways of using it!

Jean, thanks so much for visiting my blog & leaving your kind comment. This card is beautiful! I have this set and it never came out looking like this!! I love it with the Spring Break paper--which I never got for some reason. I enjoyed looking at your blog, I am going to visit you often!

I really like this one Jean. The crayon resist looks great. Mmmmm something for me to try, or should I say, something else for me to try.
