I wanted to create a masculine card, and I wanted to use some new colors. I decided that Coastal Cabana would be good for water, so I pulled out my retired Uncharted Territory stamp set.
I found these awesome Post-It notes that are sticky all over the back instead of just at the top, and they are great for stamping a mask. I put the mask over the sailboat, the sailor, and the sun before sponging on Coastal Cabana and Soft Sky ink. I added some Island Indigo to the water as well. I colored the sailboat Basic Gray and added some color highlights to the sail.
A Basic Gray mat makes the image pop against the Coastal Cabana cardbase.
