I wanted to get a card into today's post BEFORE I go to the dentist. I'm not sure how I will feel afterwards. Feeling pretty good right now as my dentist prescribed a "happy pill" for me to take before I go. As a person who rarely takes over the counter medication....I feel a little like I'm "SAILING" right now....

I finally can give you all a sneak peek of a new line coming to Cornish Heritage Farms! Woohoo! The stamp line is by Sara England and I have enjoyed coloring the ones that I have! This card is just FULL of copic goodness. I airbrushed the sky, then stamped my image, masked off just the boat portion of the image and airbrushed the water. I love this airbrushing look...notice the intentional light space by the boat. I loved it that my water didn't look "solid".
I colored my image with my copics......I saw some really neat old boats when I was in Italy, a lot of them had paint peeling off and you could see the previous boat color underneath...this is what I tried to achieve with my boat.

Ahhhh, the favorite part of this card. I stamped my image on Claudine Hellmuths sticky back canvas, airbrushed it a bit and cut it out. I then simply pasted it over my image on my card...if you look close you can still see the hint of the water and horizon through the sail....COOL!

Now that I have you as excited as I am about this new is being released June 24th! That's next week! Watch for more from me in this line.

OK, now going (kicking and screaming) to the dentist. Wishing you a great day!

Hang in there girl! This dentist trip is worth it to eat all the cold things we like during the summer!
I'll even make sure I have more cold watermelon next time you come over!!! :) No microwaved fruit any more!
