The Card Concept Challenge #12 - Use a Nautical Theme

IMG_5186


Time for a new challenge at The Card Concept!




Perfect how this challenge lined up for Father's Day!

Any reason to use my Waltzingmouse stamps is a good reason.  I used Ocean Bound and Man of the Hour to create a card for my Dad. My Dad loves anything to do with boating or water.  I picked up the colours from the inspiration photo with navy and some silver embossing and then a bit of red just because.  We hope that you join us for this challenge, looking forward to seeing what inspires you.

Tracey - love your embossed ship, the embossed stitch and CAS design. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog post - I inked the grid with soft graphite, then took off some ink with a tissue to soften the edges.
