Lilypad Lake - Be Calm

I almost forgot I had this set! Silly me, it has some great sentiments and I love the sailboats.

When I was going through the current catalog to see what was retiring, I realized I had this bundle but haven’t used it much. This stamp set and coordinating dies will be in the new catalog but not as a bundle. You can save 10% now if you order it as a bundle.

I sponged the background layer with a Sponge Brayer and some Balmy Blue Ink. It’s easy to do but you want to start off the paper and go very lightly. Repeat until you get the look you want.

On the inside I stamped the water image with Pacific Point Ink and then the sailboats with black ink and colored them the same as the card front. The sentiment was stamped with black ink. This is a great sentiment to have around for thinking of you cards.
