Greetings friends! Can you believe it is July and the year is already half over? It is also time to share the latest release from Impression Obsession.
 
I chose this card for Day 1 because I really love the sentiment and am always looking for ideas to make supportive cards. I also wanted to share it at the beginning of the month because the current sale on the IO site is 25% off nautical items. It never seems to happen that items from the new release are part of the themed sale, but this time some of them are. If there are any that interest you, now is a good time to get them since it is rare for new items to be sold at a discount.

For my card today, I started with 140lb watercolor paper and stamped the waterlines in the middle of the card using blue Versafine ink. I then placed a circle mask that I cut out from a circle die on top of the lines to make it look as though there was a sun at the horizon. I then colored around the mask with blue watercolor pencil and a blender pen. I removed the mask and colored the circle with yellow watercolor paint. To add a bit of color to the water, I painted the waves with blue watercolor paint. Once everything was dry, I stamped my birds onto the sky and added my sentiment on a die cut tag. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!
