The Sky's the Limit!


When my buddy & stamping friend was here recently, she brought this sailboat die along with her and I cut several of them in different colors. Of course I had to swap the negatives for a variety of options, and this is just one of those. The background was done with a long unloved SB impressabilities plate and softly water colored with Tumbled Glass distress ink before embossing. It has seashells and starfish and I thought it would work well with this die cut image. The Bermuda Bay cardstock was die-cut with stitched rectangles and the Art Impressions sentiment was matted with red to match the tiny sailboat. 

I'm sharing this with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "anything goes. They're featuring Art Impressions products this week.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

I love how you are giving this sailboat die a good workout. Look at all the shades of blue! Art Impressions is celebrating 30 years, and I have been with them almost that long. They are running a fantastic sale and it coaxed me into there latest release....I fell in love with the newest animal sets! BTW, That is a gorgeous embossing folder!
