It's Not Far Down to Paradise

It's not far down to paradise

At least it's not for me

And if the wind is right you can sail away

And find tranquility

The canvas can do miracles

Just you wait and see

Believe me

No, I am not a sailor, but I always wished I could be. Today's challenge for Serendipity Stamps is to create a project centered around water. I selected this beautiful sailboat stamp for my card. I stamped the image in StazOn ink on watercolor paper and then colored it with Distress Inks and cut it out. I placed it on dimensionals and then cut it out using Nestabilities Label 1 die.

I chose several papers from Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket for a backdrop and added some twine and a Tim Holtz "Journey" token.

Ready for more? Then head on over to see how water plays a role in Anya, Lynda , Jenny and Miriam's projects.

Ah, sailing, maybe some day.
