Red Sails on the Sea

As I was trying to figure out the title to this post and looking at my card I was reminded of the old OLD song, Red Sails in the Sunset.  It still plays now and then on a IHeart station I listen to and I can sing along with it almost entirely.  But this card came about because of the "netting" on it.  That was the mystery item we were given last month at a monthly stamp group in Tucson.  It is actually an item from the $ store called Mummy netting or something to that effect.

Does it look like fish net?? Did you notice the piercing around the oval?  It's included in the die set!

I used FSJ Color Splash Pencils to color the stamped images but the green in the sea isn't showing up as it does IRL. There is a more definite difference between the sky and sea on the card.

Stamps: The Bright Side
Ink: Black Licorice
Card Stocks: Whip Cream and Beach Breeze
Dies: Journey Ovals
Coloring: Color Splash Pencils
Other: Blending Brush, Craft Glue, Foam Squares, Blue Skies Sequins, and the Platinum machine

I really like how this turned out.
