Happy Father's Day on the Open Sea

Hello everyone!  Here I am again mashing it up with The Friday Mashup Challenge.  I so enjoy this challenge.  You should give it a try.  This time we could use the Ombre' Background Technique.  It's one I've seen but never tried.  You can find the tutorial HERE.  Since I needed to make a Father's Day card and because The Open Sea Stamp Set has been on my table forever, it just seemed the perfect time to try this new to me technique.  I used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo for my colors.  The 'real' card is not so white on the top, the color shows up well but in the picture, it would not cooperate and, no matter how many times I snapped the photo, it still looked the same.  Sigh...

 Stamp Sets:  The Open Sea, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Inks:  Island Indigo, Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Write Markers:  Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo; Card Stock:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Circles Collection Framelits, Linen Thread, Dimensionals
