Are you ready to sail off to new crafting adventures?

This week's Paper Craft Crew card map challenge speaks to my heart. 


I love to be near water, and always have. So when I saw this week's challenge I was thrilled. Until I looked at my stamp set collection and realized that my beach-themed stamp sets retired last year. 

But I knew I have my trusty Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing dies: 

Sailing Home

Whether you're sailing home or going off to new adventures, the images and sentiments in the Sailing Home Stamp Set will inspire you on your journey. I have used this set for masculine cards, scrapbook pages and gift ideas. 

When thinking about my card deign I decided to take a little cheat and have no sand on my card. My card, instead would be a water theme only so I used my Blending Brushes to create a waterscape background. 

Blending Brushes

I love each brush's velvety soft bristles - perfect for applying a little or a lot of ink. I decided to use Misty Moonlight for the water and then Bumblebee and Pumpkin Pie for the sky. Add a lighthouse, a sailboat and some birds in the sky and my card was complete. 

To make my layers stand out I used my Stitched Rectangles dies - and to add a little glamorous touch and visual interest. What do you think?
