Sail Away withe me

Sail Away With Me
Close up on the glossy accents
When I first saw the new Lawn Fawn releases I knew I had to have this set; Float My Boat. I adore anything nautical.

I made the background with distress inks - spiced marmalade, stormy skies, peacock feathers & broken china. I just used a sponge applicator to lightly brush it on and blend them together. I start with the lightest color all over and gradually build to dark. I find I will have less sponge marks doing it this way. The sails on the boat I used peacock feathers and stormy skies.

I used some glossy accents on the boat bottom and flag for that little bit of "Bling" for the challenge. I also used it on the string to get that curvy look to hold its shape. The sentiment is from my well used and well loved Sketchy Banners from Simon Says Stamp.

All this was layered onto the new Let's Polka paper by Lawn Fawn. The yellow in this pack is my absolute favorite shade of yellow. Yellow is my favorite color, but this specific shade trumps all the others!
