This adorable sailboat is part of the new CDS August release called Sails, Subs and Tugs. The set includes a submarine, a tugboat, this sailboat and various matching sentiments.
I watercolored the image and applied it to a background that was sponged with stampin' UP! inks. My dp was embossed using my Cuttlebug and spritzed with glimmer mist. I love the way the grommet added just the right amount of bling!
