Blue card featuring alternating shades of blue as waves in the foreground and a brown sailboat with white sails. The sentiment is Let your dreams set sail.

Project Description

This month’s blog hop theme is favorite bundles.I focused on the Let’s Set Sail Bundle, which includes a stamp set and punch. Oddly, I started this card months ago. Probably last June, and then set it aside to work on something else. I had planned it for a swap, but I didn’t get it done in time. It seemed perfect for this month’s blog hop, so I finished it up.

For the background of the waves and sailboat, I added thin strips of Masking Paper around the edges to preserve a crisp border. I blended Blushing Bride ink down from the top using a Blending Brush, and then I blended Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana up from the bottom, into the Blushing Bride to create a soft morning or evening sky.

I tore pieces of Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana to create the alternating blue waves on the bottom of the card. I dragged the torn edges on the Craft White ink pad to add breakers in the waves. I used a heavier hand with the white ink in the closer waves. The sailboat is tucked into the waves.

I stacked up three punched sailboats and sets of sails, so that the sailboat stands out a bit from the background.

  1. Traci, I love the colours you have used, and the way you have done the seafoam on the waves. I love this bundle, have created lots of lovely projects with it.
