Nautical


'Nautical' , is our new  theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges  for this coming fortnight.
We hope you will join us, please pop over,  have a look at what we have been making and get all the details. Remember we like to see stamping on your entry.
For my card I used  stamps  by Crafty Individuals.
When I decided to layer some of the images, I wish I hadn't chosen the Galleon, it was a bit of a pain to cut, so don't look to closely.
All the colouring and shading is Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky distress inks.
The knots are a Sheet Bend, Clove Hitch and a Reef Knot, all remembered from my Girl Guide days many, many, moons ago. They are layered on an embossed panel, the Seagull on the top is a Chocolate Baroque stamp.

I am entering this card in the current Challenge at Lets Ink it Up which is 'Distressing'.

Thank you for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
