Sail Away Father's Day

Another Father's Day card from my last card class.  This time using Sail Away.  

I started with a card base of Bashful Blue.  Then ran some Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White through the Top Note Die.  With the Whisper White layer this was stamped with Woodgrain in Early Espresso.  For the main layer I stamped Sail Away in Early Espresso.  I then brayered the sky in Bashful Blue and the sea in Marina Mist.  Adding some clouds by using torn paper and sponging.  I stamped the boat again on Whisper White and cut out the sails to paper piece onto the original.  I stamped a third time in Cherry Cobbler and did the same.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  Then punched out using the Word Window Punch and mounted onto a Modern Label in Marina Mist.  I added brads to the sentiment and the top corner of the main panel. 

A big Hi to Lynda, appreciate you following me!
