This takes my breath away

Thursday June 22, 2017
 
 
 I was digging through my stamps and found this old one..  I live in the Pacific Northwest and the Pacific ocean is all along our coast.  I have not used this Seattle ferry in ages.  When my hubby worked in the shipyard he rode ferries to work. He would drive from our home to the water front and park his vehicle and get on the ferry as a walk on and it's an hour ride over to where he worked. He really liked the relaxing ride. Growing up and even in my older days we would take the a ferry to Orcas Island or over to Port Townsend and camp or visit the awesome small island treasures. I have happy memories growing up taking the ferries to different areas across the sound. 
 The mountain in the background could be Mt. Rainier or Baker.. We have mountains all around us The Olympics to the West and Cascades to the East..
Of course lots of seagulls.  The stamp is by Stamping room only.. Our ferries have two tone white and green bodies but I wanted it to stand out and not blend with the background sky so I did it green. The sentiment is from Tech. Tuesday. It's true.. this does take my breath away. I am such a water person and love this beautiful state with lot's of water and mountains and greenery. I used copics and Prisma pencils for the colors. I also used my cloud template.
