You're The Best, SIP42 & CTS166

Hello my friends! It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge at Stamp Ink Paper. This week it's a color challenge, and what a delicious trio of blues it is. As soon as I saw it I was thinking along the lines of a nautical card. 

I started out with this cute little sailboat from the Sailing stamp set. I stamped it with Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then, I nestled the sailboat in some waves in all three challenge colors using the Splashy Waves Die. The card base was already embossed and sitting in my UFO box, a happy find! The sentiment from Hero Arts was heat embossed. 

The inspiration for my layout came from this week's challenge at CAS(E) this sketch. I rotated the sketch 90 degress and used a different form of transportation :)

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Sailing (Simon Says Stamp), Many Everyday Messages (Hero Arts)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay (Stampin Up)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Heat Tool, Diagonal Stripe Embossing Folder (Stampin Up), Cloud Bank Die, Splashy Waves Die (Simon Says Stamp)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks for stopping by and I would be so happy if you left a comment! Then, head over to see what the rest of our Design Team has created at Stamp Ink Paper!

Have a terrific Tuesday!
