Hi, Diane with you today!
Don't you just love it when you can take a bit of ink,
a few dies, some card stock and have a quick card in no time?
I know I do and this card was fast and perfect for the occasion .

I first started by inking up a blue card stock panel
with Distress Broken China ink and the Mini Ink Blending Tool,
to represent a swirling ocean.
The waves are Joy! Crafts Waves die .
I popped up my waves with Joy! Foam Pads Small.
I slightly bent the waves for a bit more of a 3D effect!

The Impression Obsession Sailboat was cut from white card stock,
then I colored the bottom with a red marker.
This set of dies has 3 different sailboats,
I used the largest one.

I wanted a pattern for the Impression Obsession  Sea Birds,
so I used a gray ink on white card stock using
Impression Obsession Cracked Paint Cover a Card stamp, (as shown above)
then die cut them out.

I finished by adding a sentiment and a  bit of twine!

Thank you for visiting with me today!
