Ahoy there!

I usually think of 'nautical' cards as being quite masculine, so I wanted to do one with a more feminine feel.

The boats were an SVG electronic cutter file, and I cut them out of 4 different patterned papers from a set that came free with a magazine. I inked everything and pieced them together, stamping some birds and the sentiment, (Woodware). I added some gems to the flag and sails.

Nautical scenes often tend to turn out quite masculine, but I like how you made a twist for a feminine style. It's a great idea that I'd like to try out myself! Thanks for the inspiration!
