Sail Away on The Open Sea with Stampin' Up!

It is the perfect day here for messing about on the water - but as I can't do that I thought I would make a boat inspired card instead. The Open Sea in the current Summer Mini Catalogue was the obvious choice but I wanted a yacht image so also used Sail Away, one of the A la Carte stamps from the Idea Book & Catalogue.
The yacht was stamped on Confetti White card using Basic Gray ink, I then "distressed" the edges using the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. This panel was matted onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler. The nautical background was made by stamping the various images from The Open Sea onto a piece of Confetti White card using Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler & Old Olive inks. A piece of Textured Old Olive card was layered onto a piece of Basic Gray and the yacht image popped on top of that. A piece of Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine was wrapped round and secured by a Basic Gray button from the Neutrals Designer Buttons. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (again!) and was punched out using the Word Window punch before layering on a piece of Cherry Cobbler punched using Modern Label. The background card is Basic Gray.
