Mondays with The Project Bin ~ Sail, repeat!

Happy Monday, friends!
It's a little naughti{cal} on the blog today ♥
I adore the nautical-ocean-beachy looks, including on cards,
so  today I'm featuring 'Anchors Away' by The Project Bin!

My son's recent adventures of boating and tubing were my muse :)
Since I typically try something new each week with my TPB cards
this week is no exception week:  Ombre ink!

I've spied these new Ombre inks from Hero Arts 
on several social media sites and, because I'm a curious sort,
was very intriqued. No time like the present to give it a try!

 For today's card, I inverted the ink pad from vertical to horizontal
 to have a gradual change in ink color.
Stamped the opposite direction, 
you'll get more of a striped version of the same look.
Equally pretty but stripes with stripes - I wanted a more uniform look.

The Anchor's Away stamp set is so versatile.
Take a peek at this gorgeous set and let your mind sail away with imagination! 

Now before you go ~ remember to save the date!
We have a wonderful Christmas in July blog hop planned
with holiday inspirations, cards and giveaways!!

A big thank you to the original artist who inspired my card,
 found on Pinterest!

 I hope you are enjoying summer to it's fullest ~
Be well, friends ♥

Big hugs, bigger blessings!

I'll enter my card into:  Dragonfly Journey #95 - Red, White, and Blue-tiful

  12. Kelly, this card is so striking... with the bold colors and great contrast with the white.

    I've not paid any attention to others using the Ombre inks, but now I'm sure I'll be watching to see what others do with them, too. I'm impressed!
