Serenity on the Sea

Hi friends and bloggers - I hope you're all doing well!!  Whew, it's crazy around here - but the good news is our home remodeling projects have been successful and are nearly complete!!  Yippeeeeee!!!

Today is Tuesday, and for me that means a new ODBD SLC Card - and this week is all about the Sea and Sky.  How better to celebrate the sea and sky on a card than by using ODBD stamps.  To make this card I started by stamping the Old Flag background in Sahara Sand ink, then lightly color-washing the stamp with a wide paintbrush in Real Red and Midnight Muse.  It give the background a softly colored look that I was after.

Serenity on the Sea

Once the background was complete I stamped the Waves on the Sea stamp in Midnight Muse, and then  used Glossy Glaze to accent the boat and water.  Also used a little white acrylic on the water, and then moved on to the frame and tag.  The frame is stamped in the Fishing Background, and the tag has a the old flag background lightly stamped on it as well.

This second photo shows the texture on the boat a water.

Audrey, what a lovely, meaningful card. The flag in the background sky is amazing. I would never have thought of doing that, and might CASE your idea. Is that ok? And the fishnet background image is pretty, too. All the images are, but it is your card design utilizing the stamps in the classic Audrey manner which is so eye-catching. Beautiful card, Audrey! hugs, de
