ATC Nautical swap

I created this ATC for a nautical themed swap at SplitCoastStampers. What an effort just to mail to Canada - you have to fill out a customs sticker even though you are only sending bits of cardstock!

The sailboat stamp is from Stampin' Up Winds of Grace stamp set and the compass rose is from Class Act. The compass rose was first stamped off then stamped here for a lighter look. I popped up the sail using 3D dots and glued on twine and ribbon. The rest of the sailboat was color washed with slate grey ink (same ink for compass rose). The wave is just a curl of paper with white gel ink applied.
