Sail Away with TPD Stamps

It's time for the new release at Two Paper Divas.   I'm featuring another one of the brand spankin' new stamp sets, "Sail Away".  Oh my goodness, I am in LOVE with this set!  It's super versatile and has so many amazing sentiments, perfect for just about any occasion; celebrations, missing you, encouragement and love and friendship which is the theme I'm going with today.  You Float My Boat.  Isn't it great? 

Plus, be sure and scroll down for details on the new sketch challenge that started this week .  Someone will win a fabulous prize!



Let me touch on some of the highlights of this card.  The image itself was stamped, then watercolored with my Tombow dual brush pens.  The easiest way to achieve this is swipe your ink or marker on an acrylic block then use a waterbrush pen or paintbrush dipped in water.  You can also spritz water onto your ink to dilute the color for varying shades.





The papers that I'm using today are from the DCWV "Hey Sailor" collection.  I love the knotted rope backdrop for my sailboat.  It's just perfect!  Also, I broke in my brand new stitched circle dies from La La Land.  For added interest, I trimmed the edge of one side to line up evenly with my paper's edge.  Doilies, string and sequins round out this fun, nautical project.
