Sailing at Sunset

I told you the other day that I knew how to do a proper sunset on water!!!  Well, here it is.  I used the "Sailing" stamp image again and this time I made a smaller sun. 

I think this is the first time I've ever used More Mustard as the base of my card.  It was interesting but after adding the Marina Mist and smudging it up with Not Quite Navy, it worked out just fine.  

The colors on the sun were sponged in using Daffodil Delight, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie.  I sponged a little Daffodil Delight into the water area.

Then I covered the sun with the circle I had punched out and proceeded to color in the sky and water with Marina Mist and then Not Quite Navy.  I added some Garden Green in the water so it was easier to tell where the water started and the sky ended.

Next I added a little more Daffodil Delight because I had muted the original sponging too much.

Once all that was done I stamped the boat on using black StazOn.   I stamped the boat one more time on a piece of scrap white card stock. I only stamped the sails part so I didn't need a huge piece of scrap.  I cut the sails out.  I sponged on a little Daffodil Delight on the one side of the sails and towards the bottom I sponged in some Marina Mist.  I set them in place over the stamped sails on the card front. I used Dimensionals to put them on the card.  I wanted them raised a bit.  It was just enough to give them the look of "catching the sunlight."  

The words were done on the computer and sponged with Marina Mist on the edge.  They were set in place on top of a More Mustard punched scallop and set in place on the card with Dimensionals too. 

I had a lot of fun making this card.  And I really do like the way it turned out.  It's fun when you have some great masculine cards in your stash!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
