Nautical...but nice???



I wanted to make a nautical theme card...but this one looks more sandy than sea!

The stamp is a single shell silhouette by Inca. I inked the stamp with distress inks - Victorian Velvet with Antique Linen on the tips, sprayed it with water and stamped onto watercolour paper (repeated 3 times! ) The sentiment is a red rubber Um - probably from a Non-Sequitur plate.  The compass and anchor are Kanban. The backgrounds are Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist.

Hi Marina Thank you for your sweet comment, I am feeling a little better today, sat at my computer in my dressing gown., having spent four days in bed, coughing like an old man.
I have missed seeing everyone’s creations and am now up to a bit of commenting.
Thank you for the advice with my promarkers I have bought some of the fine tips and they have helped so much . Your cards lately are fabulous, you use such beautiful colours . Take Care Hugs Elaine

Lovely nautical themed card! The seashells stamped in the soft colors is a delicate touch and great idea to stamp the anchor on a mini tag! Thank you for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!
