Say It Again Sam

And it’s Saturday again! What a fun theme this week for our Saturday Blog Hop – Say It Again Sam – using a repeated greeting to make the background.  I LOVED this challenge!

I used the the greeting from Silhouette Scenes for the background and the boat from Sailing home (colored in) to make my card.  What fun!

Here’s the details…

  • Seaside Spray – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, first stamp the greeting multiple times using Soft Spray to create the ‘water’ then in Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody and final Daffodil Delight to create the sunset, stamp birds using Memento Black, layer onto Pumpkin Pie 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp large boat 2 times using Memento Black, color using Dark Basic Black Blend, add to card front using dimensionals.

LOVE how this turned out!
