Good Day for Sailing

Well not here in Indiana--a little too cold still. But I'm sure it is a good day for sailing somewhere.
I water colored background with SU Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Baked Brown Sugar. I had some strips of blue weathered board paper so cut them into pieces to resemble a fence. Stamped seaweed from SU Wetlands in the brown sugar. Punched cloud was sponged with some Basic Gray and a little Pool Party and popped up with foam tape. The sailboat is a very old stamp. I tried to go for the shadowy look so stamped it in Baked Brown Sugar after stamping off once. It was a little too dark so I painted some white over the sails. The sentiment is from The Angel Company. I had some die cut dragonflies laying on the desk so glued a couple of them on the seaweed. You may have to click on picture for a larger view to see the dragonflies.
I still wasn't sure about the sailboat so I tried the whole thing again and stamped the boat in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Which do you like better?

I am entering challenges at Just Us Girls

And CASology going for warm summer day as my weather inspiration.


  1. Both of these are so pretty and make me want to go to the beach! I think I like the definition of the first boat best!

  2. Yes I do see those cute dragonflies. Love the scenes you created. The first card shows the sailboat so well. Great male card. Thanks for joining us this week at Just Us Girls.

  3. Love the calm seaside scene you have created. I think I like the more defined sailboat the best, although they are both great. Have a wonderful Easter.

  4. What a fantastic scene - I can almost smell the ocean! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

  5. Love the beach scene you created Donna! Really love the sea oats and the dragon flies! Thanks for joining us this week for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls!
