Hey everyone! Welcome back!

This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down for this week’s Runway Inspired Challenge!! 🙂

So it’s time for the Neat & Tangled July Release! We have *five* awesome sets being released this month!! Definitely something for everyone, with some super-versatile sets!! 


Today I’m helping to introduce a new set called Sailmates. Picture nautical meets cute meets awesome!! I am just giddy about this set!

I very much had Julie Ebersole on the brain when I came up with this:

I love how this turned out!

I started with a panel of Rustic White cardstock and stamped the waves using WPlus9 ink in Lake House. I then tapped my inkpad onto my block and added a little water mixed with Perfect Pearls and watercoloured over it.

Next I stamped the boat using Studio Calico Colour Theory ink in Deja Blue and again onto some Pure White cardstock. This time I watercoloured with Hero Arts ink in Fresh Peach, and a little WPlus9 ink in Wild Mango before adhering the body of the boat over the top of the waves. I continued some of that watercolour into the sky around my sentiment too! I adhered my panel to my base using Pinflair Glue Gel and I was all done!
