Inspiration By the Sea

Hello and welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink June countdown! 

Today is the first group post and it's all about gaining inspiration from the sea. We are showcasing two new sets today... Guiding Light and Ahoy.  Along with other new coordinating items... the Cover Plate: Waves and Light of Life sentiment stamp set.

Take a look...

Most of you are already pretty familiar with my new stamp set, Ahoy, since I've already been sharing samples over the last couple days.  Today I bring you one more!  The focus this time... the ship.  The sails are together in one stamp and the base/pole are another.  I carefully inked each sail a different color, soft stone and spring rain. 
I nestled the tiny boat, rope, and tiny anchor into a portion of the die cut Cover Plate: Waves.  Then finished the card off with a Keep It Simple: Praying For You sentiment.
Here's a look at Guiding Light and Light of Life, they pair perfectly together. 
These waves are leftover pieces from the Cover Plate: Waves die cut used on the card above. With the use of an enchanted evening ink pad I watercolor each piece with the smooshing technique.

Well, that concludes today's look at Guiding Light and Ahoy. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning June 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
