Thanks For Keeping Me Afloat


Hello! I have a fun card to share with you today that I created with some beautiful stamps from the newest Papertrey Ink release! I loved Betsy's newest What The Doodle: Waves set, so I had to make one more card with it. I paired it up with the fun new Sun & Surf Stencils and here is what I came up with!





I used some Hawaiian Shores ink and blended that through the Waves stencil on Stamper's Select card stock, then I just used a little bit more of that same ink and water and watercolored around a little down at the bottom, and splattered some of that too. I colored the waves and the sailboat with Copic markers, cut them out with the matching dies and adhered them with foam tape. 





The sentient I stamped on some Smokey Shadow card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. It is cut out with the banner die from Tag Sale: Quilted. I stamped the "Afloat" in True Black ink underneath.


OTHER: Sun & Surf Stencil Collection, Copic Markers

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Oooh, Kay, love the blues on this one. And the doodle-y waves. And the use of the stencil and the watercoloring and the speckles that looks like ocean spray. There's some great movement on this one. The red on the sailboat really pops, too. I like your banner in the dark gray. It's not quite as stark as black, but gives the same oomph as black. Such a neat card, Kay! I hope you and your family have an awesome holiday weekend!! Hugs!!

  5. Such a fabulous card, Kay! Love how the stitched black sentiment strip stands out and compliments the card, but doesn't detract from that gorgeous boat/water scene!
