Blue Peter

    I thought I'd try playing with some stamps that have been tucked away for a while. This set is from Creative Expressions Nautical Journey.
    I like working with just one ink colour and for a nautical card blue just feels right, this is Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire.
    I have stamped on to white card and coloured the edges too. The phrase is clear embossed over the blue to make it stand out a little more. The ship has been stamped and coloured with a waterbrush, then cut out and mounted on foam pads.
    I have mounted the white card on to blue, then wrapped some blue and white Bakers Twine around one corner to hold a punched tag and a metal charm of a ships wheel. The blue card was then stuck on to a white card blank.
    I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cards for Men - Bingo ( Punch, Stamp, Twine. Charm, Stamp, Tag)
Creative Moments - Holidays
