Blue Skies and Smooth Sailing

 Hello!  The current Fusion challenge is all about Blue Skies and Smooth Sailing.  I tried to convey that in my card using a scene with blue skies and a sailboat.  I used both the Sketch and Photo from this challenge in making my entry. To begin I chose a pattern paper from Fancy Pants shown in its original state beneath my card.  I altered the color by inking with Distress Inks to make it more green for the background and more blue for the fish-tailed strip.  I used Flourishes Beach Life stamp set and a GKD Starfish stamp from Gifts from the Sea set. Other supplies: Navy and White CS, Memento Tuxedo Black, Toffee Crunch, Summer Sky, Paris Dusk inks, Copics E33, B0000, BG000, Rectangle and Square dies.  I fancy cut the starfish and attached with foam pop up.

Tip: I do not have any fish tail banner dies. To make a fish tail on a strip of paper, use the corner tip of a square die centered on the end and cut. 

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

So cool! I can see the influence from the inspiration pic in the wood grain background. Love the pretty little tranquil scene you created!
