Swell!

It's not completely my idea...but I can't find the blog that I CASEd from! It's not this one by JanTink, although it looks similar. I didn't find hers until I was searching for the original. If you recognize this, let me know so I can give credit. (The original was a "welcome little one" card). I annoy myself when I don't remember to keep that information. Anyway...I don't have Nursery Necessities by SU!, so I improvised and made some stamps out of cheap foam. I used Ranger Distress Ink for the sails...it matched the paper so perfectly, and I used SU Cranberry for the bottom of the boat. I NEEDED to buy the Fiskars wavy water punch JUST so I could make this card. It was a necessity. Really. Honest. I dabbed white ink on the tips of the waves and like how that looks. I used a nestie for the scallops, computer generated sentiment, and paper that I could NOT resist!! I thought the "SWELL" was perfect for the ocean waves!

I can completely relate to buying a tool because a current project 'needed' it! You score bonus innovation points for the sails, though, so it evens out, right?? Cute, cute card and I love the sentiment!

Hiya! I love how you used the Nesties to create the waves and then added a bit of white. Great job!
(BTW- 3 of us all commented on certain blogs one after the other! felt like I was stalking you! LOL)
