I had not tried "Acrylic Block Background" Stamping before. For those unfamiliar with it, there is a tutorial link here. Here is my version of Vikki's card......
As you can see I have made a couple of minor alterations, but was thrilled with the final outcome. The sails are on dimensionals, which give it a billowy feel. There is also a close up of the effect you get with the acrylic block. My block had wavy edges, which fitted the nautical theme beautifully.
I tried to carry through the feel of ropes and pulleys with the ribbon through the eyelets.
I hope you like this card as much as I do. Sail Away is definitely my "go to" male card" stamp at the moment.
Thanks for dropping by.
