For my card I started with some watercolor card stock and ranger distress inks. I stamped the image from Verve's Deco Borders to create a beach scene with sand, ocean, and sky. I used a water brush to sweep across the stamped images for a more watercolor effect. I stamped the sailboat from Verve's With Love set directly onto the background and again onto white card stock where I used copics to color. I cut out the main pieces and popped up using foam tape. I die cut a few clouds using Verve's Partly Cloudy die set.
I stamped and die cut some images using Verve's Strong Anchor stamp set and Nautical die set using Verve's Flourished Tag set for the sentiment. I die cut a circle from the Flourish Tag set as well to add behind the vellum sentiment to make the sentiment pop a bit more and not have to compete with the background. I added some wink of stella to the sailboat, the clouds, and the anchor. I finished my card with a few wooden stars.
