Bon Voyage!

My sister's co-worker asked me to make several cards for some people at her work who will be retiring soon...5, I believe. This is the first card I created for her. I guess he likes to travel and I really don't have a lot of stamps with that theme but I do have Boatloads of Love from Stampin' Up.

I stamped the image with Staz-On Jet Black ink and colored it with aqua painter with Prisma Watercolor Pencils. The card base is stamped with the Canvas background. All 3 cloud puffs are cut out and popped up with dimensionals and added Crystal Stickles. Silver eyelets were used for the windows. The sentiment was printed in the computer and punched it with Word Window Punch (we actually, changed the sentiment from "Happy trails to you" to "Bon Voyage") but just didn't have the chance to take a photo of it.
