Stamp Club Sail Away, using MDS

Good morning! Here’s one of the fun cards we created at stamp club this past weekend. When I saw the Sail Away stamp in the Summer Mini catalog, I knew I’d want to use it for Scrapbooking. So, I purchased the MDS download instead of the traditional rubber stamp. Then I saw several really fun cards using the stamp, especially the ones with colored backgrounds and the bright, white sails. I decided to just size my MDS image and print it off for stamp club. This was really easy, and if the ladies agree, I’ll do this with more of my downloads.

I printed the main image on Whisper White cardstock. Then we sponged the sky and ocean colors. And I gave them another piece of WW cardstock with the sails. They cut that part out and laid it over the sponged image. This card is finished with an embossed piece of Basic Black and a couple brads.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for your kind comment. We created the sun using a mask. The rest of the colors were sponged over the original "Sailaway" image. Then a separate set of sails were cut out and attached using Dimensionals.
