I am so into all things nautical, both above and below water, right now so immediately thought I'd CASE a card we made in a Julie Ebersole class at Impress a couple of months ago (Tonya took the pic below of her version from class--so cute, right?).
I masked off the front panel and sponged it with DI Salty Ocean. I like the different shades of blue--like sunlight reflecting off the water. For the ghosting, I took my HA Waves background stamp, spritzed it lightly with water and pressed it over the entire panel. It didn't look like it had worked until I gave it a little blow with the heating gun. Wowza! Love the effect. The sailboats are die cut from gold foil cardstock and a red gelli print.
