I love you a boatload!

Hi everyone!!
I had a nice crafting weekend and I got a couple of cards done, I loooove those weekends!

I have tons of cards ideas in my head right now, but not enough time to make them all, so lets start sharing, so I can go back to card making before my mojo goes out the door!!!

Lots of silhouette and hero arts on this card. First I engraved the cloud background from hero arts, and colored around the clouds using chalks. Then I cut the waves and stamped them using the magical background stamp with broken china distress ink. I colored the cardstock using the same ink and the ink aplicator, and I darkened the edges with Chipped Sapphire.
The boat is a design from Hero Arts for the Silhouette. I cut it and colored it using Distress inks (Weathered wood, Pumice stone, Black soot and Fired Brick for the flag). To finish it I cut a sun and some hearts and colored them with distress inks too (Fired brick, Mustard Seed and Spiced marmalade).
I didnt have a sentiment that I could use with this card, so I took Harold's ABCs from Lawn fawn and I created my own and stamped it with Memento black ink.

Then I glued everything onto the front of the card and covered the hearts and the windows on the boat with Glossy Accents. When I glued the boat, I put part of it on dimensionals, so it would look like is coming of the page.

Ok, sorry for the long post, and I hope you liked it. Thanks for stopping by!!
