I need a vacation...

One of the reasons that I love being on the design team for Stampendous is all the great companies that we get product from!
For this last release we were very lucky to get some beautiful patterned paper from Graphic45!


This paper from Voyage Beneath the Sea line matched perfectly with so many of the fun Summer stamps that Fran created for the April release.

This week the team is sharing some of our projects that we created with Graphic45 paper!


Here is a project that I made using the new Jumbo Sailboat stamp set and the matching die set.


I colored the image with colored pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.
I embossed the waves with  detail white embossing powder.


This card just reminds me that I need a vacation....or even just a day to spend out on the open sea.....feeling the wind in my hair and a glass of wine in my hand!  Perfect!


The sentiment on this card is from the Ocean Wisdom Perfectly Clear Stamps.

There are more projects to see so hop on over to the Stampendous Blog to see who is sharing today.

I don't think I've ever been on a sailboat.
I'm afraid of the water so I'm kind of careful about what I do
around it.
We do have a pontoon boat that I love to be on.
Your card is wonderful. I have to get the gamisol out
and use it for shading.
thanks for sharing
