Waving Hello {Purple Onion Designs}

After watching all the 9/11 tributes and programs this weekend which were very moving, I felt I needed to spend time in my craft room to take my mind off all the sadness. It may have been twenty years ago but it is still raw as I am sure it was for you. Purple Onion Designs stamps are always so cheerful and innocent so they were a panacea to the somberness I was feeling. 

I stamped the S.S. Minow onto Copic friendly cardstock, colored with Copic markers, then fussy cut out using scissors and my Fiskars Fingertip craft knife for the more intricate areas. To create the background panel, I embossed a cloudy day cover panel onto a white linen cardstock rectangle and added the waves in three different colors of cardstock. I slipped in the sailboat between the waves using thin foam dimensionals. The sentiment from the Journey Sentiment Set  was separated and stamped onto a cloud cut with a cutting file and another one cut with the cover panel.
