Taylored Expressions Release Party!

Come join the party!  You'll find tasty little morsels of inspiration presented by the Baker's Dozen featuring everything that is Fresh Out of the Oven from Taylored Expressions!

Today it's my turn to showcase Bon Voyage - a new set illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line.  

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on both Choice Snow White Cardstock and Paradise Beach 6x6 paper and paper pieced the waves.  The ship is colored with Copic Markers and I added some fun waves with the Wave Border Die.  The sentiment banner is the Fly Your Flag 3 Die, cut in half and then I cut out a thin piece of Kraft Cardstock for the stick. The layout is Jen Del Muro's SFYTT for June.

I cut out some clouds with the Cloud Duo Die and then embossed them with the wavy side of the Waves/Bubbles Impression Plate and layered them over the image with Foam Tape
