Bright Nautical Encouragement Card


lilly sailboat possibilitiesToday’s card was inspired by two Lilly Pulitzer prints – You Gotta Regatta and Out to Sea. Also this post from last year, Repurposed Lilly Pulitzer Postcard .

Geez, and maybe this post, SSS Sail Away by Laura Bassen . I don’t remember how long this background has been on my craft table. I would hate to not give inspirational credit where it is due!

Really, what’s not to like about bright, happy sailboats?

I stamped the sailboat pattern, and then watercolored a bit of Pool Party ink around the boats with an aqua brush.

This is another sentiment from the Simon Says Stamps Uplifting Thoughts stamp set – love it!
