Nautical colored card

Hi everyone,

It's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Nautical Nonsense. From the sea and the beach to mermaids and pirates. And everything in between. Can't wait to see your projects.


This card I made for my best (guy) friend's girlfriend. Ohh what an great age, 26! Wish I was still 26..., but anyway back to business. This week I was especially inspired by the nautical colors. Navy blue, red and white. But also wanted to give it a little bit of a sea theme. The Grungy Silhouette of Dina Wakley with the big bubble around the head is perfect for that. The wooden Burnished Circles by Studio Calico are so pretty, love the dark kind and the anchor one goes with the theme very well.



For this card I did some techniques I normally do in my artjournal. As as stamping with stencils and stamping with paint. Especially stamping with paint is a favorite of mine. I say this every time, but I'm so glad I've learned this technique. I took me a while... It gives such a nice effect.



Cork is hot right now, and these corks Arrows stickers from Studio Calico are stunning. They are very delicate, so when applying them be careful.

  18. You have such a skill at making everything look so...cool! Every time-- I think, "wow. That totally could've gone cheesy (like using a primary color combo). But I do believe that you can pull ANYTHING off because everything you make is so sophisticated. Cheesy is just not in your vocabulary and it's always a joy to see how you make classy stuff from elements that could otherwise go awry!
