Sail Away - Stained Glass
The Sail Away stamp can be found at the back of the mini catalogue (£8.95). It's a lovely little stamp .... and perfect for men's cards :o)
The image is stamped onto Cardstock Vellum (page 87) using Versamark (page 103) and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder (page 100). I then flipped the Vellum over and coloured the sails on the reverse with my Real Red Stampin' Marker. This technique is called Stained Glass :o) The marker ink takes a while to dry on the Vellum, so let it sit for a while. Don't be tempted to dry it with a heat gun as this will melt the Embossing on the other side again!
Behind the Vellum is a Whisper White mat which I have colour washed with my Aqua Painter using Marina Mist ink for the sky and Pacific Point ink for the sea.
The background paper is from the Brights DSP Patterns Stack (page 91).
The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations (page 72 £21.95) which has been stamped onto a punched Scallop Oval (page 105) and this has been layered on top of a punched Decorative Label (mini catalogue).
The colours used here are Real Red and Pacific Point.
