CPS #49 Two Ways

When I first saw this sketch, I immediately thought "waves." So here is the first take on this sketch. I stamped the sailboat from Toy Box 3 times, colored them and cut them out. The sentiment is from Studio G, from Michael's. Ribbon is from my stash. I embossed waves in the water with holographic embossing powder, sponged Soft Sky and white for clouds in the sky. Simple, I may tuck it into DH's suitcase when he leaves town again...The second card I made from this sketch is totally different. The sentiment is from an unmarked set of mine. I stamped it in Soft Sky, then clear embossed it, then watercolored around it with Cameo Coral to make it stand out a tiny bit more. Now it's hard to get a clear photo because of the EP - it says "Sweet Friend." I'll try again in daylight tomorrow. Tiny brads in the centers of the flowers are Queen & Company, flowers are Primas. Rhinestones are from the craft store. The DP is Miss Elizabeth's that I just picked up today at the dollar store.

Thanks for looking!

Great cards, I especially love the first one. The waves are so nicely done with the little boats. Thanks for sharing.
