Sailing anyone!

Hi there,

Last week I received some new dies from Simon Says Stamp - the Sailboat die and the Sunshine die.
I couldn't wait to use them so I created this card:

I first started by applying three different colours of blue distress inks to my cardstock. When I was happy with the blending I used a Spellbinders die to cut out 3 sets of waves. I then used a stencil to apply the sunshine rays to my card. The sun was cut using a circle stitched die.
I popped up the waves with some foam tape and then ran the whole piece through my Cuttlebug using a stitched die from SSS.

I die cut the sailboat and applied Wink of Stella to the sails and Glossy accents to the base of the boat. I then added different Copic colours to a piece of cardstock and die cut the sunshine piece.

When all was done I added some water droplets to the waves and tucked a few sequins in behind the waves to make it look like they were buoys lol!

Thanks for stopping by,
