Stampin'B's Challenge #42 - Nautical

Joanne (our lover of lighthouses) was the hostess this week for the Stampin'B's DT Challenge Blog. She wanted us to do a nautical card – anything with boats, shells, lighthouses, etc., etc., etc.

I had bought an economy set of stamps from A.C. Moore before they closed their Orlando store – with shells and lighthouses. I especially liked this image, which I stamped with Palette Burnt Umber and colored with Copic and Prismcolor markers. The sentiment is from a set of nautical stamps from Impression Obsession, and I thought it would work well with the shells. After searching through my drawer full of blue paper, I found this Cloud 9 paper with all sorts of nautical sayings on it – it provided me with my color combo.
-----------
Stamps - A.C. Moore, Impression Obsession
Paper - GP White, Close to Cocoa, Cloud 9
Ink - Palette Burnt Umber
Accessories - Nestabilities ovals, Copic and Prismacolor markers, Ribbon
