My Card ~
The sailboat is from "Happy Travels" by Glitz. 
After stamping it in Black ink, I used Spectrum Noir markers to color everything on the Spellbinders die cut panel on white card-stock.  The water has some glossy accents spread over it and the sail is colored with white Opaque Paint Marker. That rope is tied into a Carrick Bend nautical knot (had to google that info)  :-)
The turquoise card base is embossed with a 'Sunburst'  Sissix folder for a little more texture.
I have a couple of sailboat enthusiasts in my family, so this card will surely be used for a Birthday this summer.


  1. So beautiful, Helen! The knot adds some charm! Great coloring and textures!
