Tanda Teaser - All at sea

What with job hunting and going to see Caroline this card was only finished today! Shocking I know.

Sue's challenge this fortnight at Tanda Teaser is 'All at sea'. This is one of the few times I've done a Tanda Teaser without using Tanda stamps.

Base card blended with Blue DI inks and a piece of mulberry paper for the mat. Glossy card brayed with Meadow Mountain for the sky and Hydrangea run over crumpled paper for the sea. Shairon and Joy if you see this please not the lines. Sail boat stamped and embossed in black onto the glossy card after the sky was in place but before the water. Stamped and embossed again onto pale blue vellum the sails cut out of the vellum and stuck onto the glossy card on the leading edge only. Crumple marks on sea and clouds behind sail 'coloured' with white Sakura souffle. Words stamped in teal stayzon part of a Papermania stamp.
