Setting sails


Hello sweetest bloggers! I hope you're all well. In real life I'm quite upset, something I rarely am. I won't bore you with details, but it's a trust thing and I'm really in midst of stormy feelings, so why not set sails to calmer waters and sunny beaches.

The sentiment says in Swedish  "It doesn't matter where you come from. It matters where you go." See, the card has a theme :)

Challenges:
Less Is More: Hello Sunshine
Crafty Catz: Let's feel the music ( This card makes me so think about Rod Stewart)

All pieces are made with leftovers :)

Materials used:
Panduro sailboat image stamped with Watering Can Archival ink onto two watercolour paper leftovers.
Penny Black Sunburst image stamped with Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress inks.
Vilda Stamps sentiment also stamped with the Archival ink.
Winsor & Newton watercolours, golden and blue metallic Sakura pens.
Needle for piercing and 3D squares.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's very much appreciated! I hope you can sail away, at least in your thoughts, to sunsets, warm breezes and waters.

Lova and warm hugs
Maarit
