Sailing the Ocean Blue

A double header for today's card; I've amalgamated the Just Add Ink sketch challenge with the Inkspirations colour challenge.

The colours are perfect for a masculine card and even more perfectly fit the colours of the papers I wanted to use. Here's my card:

The sails have been stamped twice and layered - little bit of fussy cutting, but not too bad and it makes me think of a ship in a bottle. I covered the anchor stamp with crystal effects after cutting it out, then tied some cherry cobbler baker's twine through. It took no time at all for the CE to dry in this heatwave we are having! Phew! Wouldn't mind an ocean voyage to cool off, lol.

Materials used:

  • stamps - The Open Sea
  • card - cherry cobbler, not quite navy, very vanilla, sahara sand, Nautical Expeditions DSP
  • other - crystal effects, bakers twine, dimensionals, non SU die, Big Shot, sponge daubers

Thanks for stopping by.

Gorgeous Kez. This set, DSP and Bakers Twine are top on the list for my pre-order. Hope I can do justice to the set like you have.

Perfect combination of challenges Kez, the layout and colours are great together and the extra detail in the fussy cut sails and anchor are fabulous.
Thanks for playing at JAI.
