Sailboat card

The new challenge over at Paper Playtime is to "Cool off with Water!" I think it would be a lovely way to enjoy the summer weather by sailing into the sunset.  Here is my take on the challenge. The card shape is from Preserves.  I sized it to be an A2 portrait card.  I just love the shape! :)

This adorable little sailboat is from New Arrival. It's sized to 3 1/2".  All the pieces are cut from scraps. I added some Glossy Accents to the little port-hole windows and attached the boat with pop dots. I added an adorable little red button to the top of the mast.

The clouds are from Everyday Paper Dolls. I sized them at 2", 1 3/4", and two at 1 1/2". I used a finger dauber to ink them in royal blue and "trace" them with some Star Dust Stickles.  I did the same thing to the patterned paper for the sky.

The sun is from Country Life (cut at 2 3/4") and finished off with some dark orange ink (applied with a finger dauber) and Glossy Accents.  The wave are from ZooBalloo (the taller waves) cut at 3/4" and Plantin School Book cut at 1 3/4" and 1 1/4". I inked all those with royal blue ink too.  After layering them on the card front, I applied Stickles too.

The little rhinestones are from Craft Warehouse, the "hello" stamp is from Scrappy Mom's. As a finishing touch, I doodled some stitches using my white gel pen.
