Happy Father's Day

My step-dad and mom are on a cruise and today is a sea day for them.  I thought using this Travel Ways set from Tim Holtz was quite appropriate for the day.

I used a speckled blue card stock as my base then a layer of denim card stock before stamping on the aqua card stock.  The 2 lighter images were stamped using Ranger's Watermark Ink while the ship and sentiment were stamped in Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink. 

The waves were cut from the denim card stock using an old Sizzix yellow die.  I reversed the direction of the waves for the front and back layers.  I smudged darker distress blue ink on the crests then piped white puffy paint on top.  Before it dried I added Judikins Aegean Silver embossing powder.  Heat set to indicate foam on the wave crests.

A corner rounder punch was used on the tops of the two layers.

Happy Father's Day, Ken!
