Swipe On... Swipe Off...
StampTV’s Swipe On Swipe Off challenge sounded like it would make a pretty sunset background for a sail ship. Our nephew’s birthday is coming up and I think he’d enjoy this card, after sailing around the Outer Banks this summer.

I used six different Memento Dew Drop inkpads and just swiped them across the white card stock. Then I stamped the image and ran the card stock through my Big Shot with the largest Classic Diamonds die. The sails were colored with a clear glitter pen. If you click to enlarge, you may be able to see that the Smoky Slate background was lightly “impressed” with the Sea Scape template.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Love this technique and the way you used the die for the sentiment– perfection!
