Club Sail Away

Card one from the weekend Club gathering with my girls. I wanted to use the Water Color Crayons with them, but I wanted to do a different card than any of the other Sail Away cards I've done. I spent lots of time Friday night debating, but finally came up with this first thing Saturday. Last minute is always my best creative time :)



The card base is Basic Black with a Cherry Cobbler accent layer behind the Crumb Cake background. For the background, we first stamped the "Wonderfully Worn" background stamp with Cherry Cobbler ink on the Crumb Cake. Then we textured it with the Square Lattice embossing folder. The boat was stamped on Watercolor paper with Jet Black Stazon. We then added added color with the Water Color Crayons as follows: Baja Breeze lightly for the sky, Baja Breeze darker for the ocean, Crumb Cake for the sails, and Cherry Cobbler for the boat and flag. Colors were blended and added with Blender Pens. Across the bottom is a Basic Black grosgrain ribbon with 2 wraps of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. To do this, we attached the grosgrain with Snail adhesive to the back of the Crumb Cake. We then added more Snail, over the grosgrain and on the Crumb Cake, and stuck down the Baker's Twine. The saying is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped with Stazon Black on Crumb Cake and punched with the Modern Label punch. Behind is the Large Oval punched of Cherry Cobbler. Those two were attached together, then we added brads through the Modern label-all the way through the ribbon and Crumb Cake. The reason I did that: usually I use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach sayings over ribbon. But, in this case, the ribbon was too wide to go over. So we went through instead.

Great card! I really like the pop of "worn" cherry on the embossed crumb background.
