Dream Sailing

I am really enjoying this new stamp set: Sailing Home. I am not an artist, but decided to try my hand at water coloring. The aqua painter makes it quite easy. What do you think?

Stamps: Sailing Home
Paper: Island Indigo A-2, Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4 (Inside), Soft Sky 5 3/8 x 4 1/8, Watercolor 5 1/4 x 4
Ink: Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Archival Basic Black
Technique: Watercolor
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Adhesive

I began with the horizon line using the Island Indigo ink. I brought the ink all the way down to the bottom of the paper. I then added the Tempting Turquoise over it until I achieved the look I wanted. The sky is painted with Soft Sky ink. 

I made another card with a vertical orientation:

Once all of the watercolor was dry, I stamped my images and sentiment with the Archival Basic Black ink. I then colored in the sails on the boats with Island Indigo ink.

I think this would also make a very nice Father's Day, Birthday, or any occasion. All you have to do is change the sentiment. 

Thanks for stopping by here. Let me know what you think.
