You float my boat


Stamp:  Tremendous Treats Valentine (PTI)
Ink: London Fog (Memento); Aqua (Ranger Adirondack), Christmas Red (HobbyCraft)
Paper: " Peas in a Bucket, Sheryl K Designs, Shabby Princess
Font: Migraine Sans
Here is my entry for this week's Less is More - paper piecing, hurray!
I printed the sentiment then masked off a square using torn edge paper for a softer finish.  I stamped the boat then sponged in the sky with aqua ink.  Originally, the sea was sponged with darker blue, but it looked all wrong, so I paper pieced it instead.  The heart & flag were sponged with red & cut out - the heart has sellotape over it to give it a bit of gloss. 


This is very similar to a card I made a couple of weeks ago using another stamp from the same set.
