My first post for Guest Designer for Die-Versons and IT'S Release Night

This has been under wraps for awhile but I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Die-Versions for the month of May. Guess what! it's Release night for May and we are calling it "Trains, Planes and Automoblies." I was given 3 dies to play with and one of my dies was the cute little sailboat. So here is my card using the sailboat, I started out using Early Espresso for my base which is 5"x 7" finished card size. I used Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper for the rest. I added 2 layers; a brown anchor paper and blue metallic paper. I then took red metallic paper and ran it thru an embossing folder called 'Square Lattice' along with a piece of blue metallic for the third layer. I added some Cherry Cobbler twine to blue embossed paper before attaching onto the red metallic paper.  I then used the stamp set that coordinates with the paper line to add some detail. I took the ledger stamp using Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped onto shimmery white paper. I then took my aqua painter because it was a dye base ink, it bled so it soften the Cherry Cobbler lines and added some blue using Night of Navy reinker to the mix. Again I took the ledger stamps using Early Espress and stamp 3 times onto shimmery white paper using 2 & 3 value. I then used sail boat stamp, to stamp a darker image onto the ledger paper. I then used my aqua painter to bleed the ink out and added some red, blue and brown ink to color the paper. I cut this out using scallop  punch. I added some blue and red ink along edges. I then used the Bon Voyage die from Die-Versions which you can find in the store here; https://www.die-versions.com/Sweet-Spots--Bon-Voyage_p_332.html using red metallic paper which I laid over top of my sail boat. I added a charm that I made using Bronze Utee and used the anchor stamp to stamp into the Utee. I hung it using Tim Holtz jump rings as shown. I cut out the sail boat by Die Versions from the new May release which you will find it here; https://www.die-versions.com/Whispers--Sailing-By_p_384.html using the brown achor paper. I then added another new die that is being release today called "XOXO" Express Edge which you will also find here; https://www.die-versions.com/Express-Edges--XOXO-Edge_p_373.html
We unveil our dies on the first Monday of the month.
