Boatloads of Love

Boatloads of Love
Images © 1990-2008 Stampin' Up!

This stamp set has been available for a while, however it is a recent addition to my stamp set collection. I had a lot of fun with this card... lots of details.

For the main image, I started with two boats, I distressed the edges of the first image using DTP with a Black Stazon pad. I used a bashful blue marker to highlight the outer edges of the image to create a shadow. I applied color to several areas of the main image for more depth. The second image was colored, and cut out. I used a 1/8" handheld punch to punch out the small circles in various areas. I used a Fiskars heart handheld punch to create the stack of hearts inside the boat. For the matting underneath the sentiment I adhered to large ovals together. Finishing touches .... no card of mine is complete without the glitter. This card has lots of silver glittler specs ... and I meant LOTS, I used a fabric glitter spray to achieve this look.
