Brand Ambassador Inspiration - Invitation au voyage

 Bonjour !

Izzy here. For you who have not gone on vacation or for you who already wish to leave again, I invite you today to follow me on this trip.

We will start our cruise aboard a beautiful sailboat ...

For this card I used the Nautical Treasures set for the sailboat and the compass rose. I stamped in dark blue the sailboat on a stitched square card stock as well as the small compass and the sentiment stamped in red.

To make the large white panel background, I used the Anchors stencil to emboss. Then I used the Background Blocks Pinstripe to make the thin stripe panel behind the sailboat.

The winds being favorable, we will not take long to reach the Pacific Ocean and its islands with a tropical climate.

For this second card, I used one of the Background Builders Arts Décoratifs stamp to illustrate the wave on the ocean. I simply blended three blue Distress oxide inks shades on a white panel, and once dry I repeatedly stamped and white heat emboss the waves. 

For the hibiscus flower and leaves I used the Paradise and Paradise Leaves that I stamped with Altenew inks on a white card stock and I white heat embossed the outlines before fussy cut the images.

In order to see these magnificent flowers more closely, we will dock on one of the islands.

I get inspired by Yana Smakula's recent post to make this card. I stamped the hibiscus flowers around the edges of a white panel then with some masks, I stamped the leaves. I coloured them with Copic Markers. I also coloured the background and then I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment which comes from the Sentiments Outlines set. To finish I flat adhered this panel on a double white card.

I hope you enjoy this little virtual journey as much as I enjoyed making these cards. Thanks so much for visiting Uniko !

Take care and have fun crafting safely at home !
