The Open Sea Birthday Wishes

Another day to play In My Craft Room, how lucky am I?  Today's card share is from the set "The Open Sea" which is not in any of the current catalogues.  Stampin' Up! calls it a "Write In" which means it was in the last mini, it did not make it into the new main catalogue but is still available!  Yippeeeee.
I used the new Pewter Embossing Powder available in the Holiday Mini Catalogue on the anchors.  Then I wanted some brads to match, well I did not have any handy, so I used some 5/16" Silver Brads and now I can't wait to "dye" more with the other coloured embossing powders....
Stamps:  The Open Sea, So Happy For You
Ink:  StazOn, VersaMark, Pool Party, Island Indigo
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Island Indigo, Pool Party
Other:  Stripes Embossing Folder, Pewter Embossing Powder, 5/16" Silver Brad, Decorative Label Punch,White Baker's Twine, Aqua Pen
I used an Aqua Pen and washed the background behind the ship with Pool Party ink.  The ship is stamped on regular white cardstock, I did not use Watercolour paper. I used very little water when washing the ink so it did not harm the cardstock..
   Whisper White - 5.5 x 8.5
   Island Indigo - 5.25 x 4
   Pool Party - 3-5/8 x 3-1/8
   Whisper White - 3.5 x 3
Happy Stampin' ......

I love your card. I don't like cutting things out but it adds so much to the card. I will be bookmarking your blog. Thanks for sharing.
