The Open Sea

My card is for the StampinB's challenge #113 which is to make a masculine card using black & brown and one other color. I just got this SU! set called the Open Sea a couple days ago and couldn't wait to make a card with it. I stamped the background panel on a sheet of BG kraft DP, distressing and sponging with Vintage Photo ink. The main image was stamped in black and sponged with antique linen ink. I used pacific point blue as my background because this image just seemed to need that color. I made the sailors knot out of hemp and added a few star mini brads for the final touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I wish you a happy Saturday!

This is a very nice card, Carol. I'm impressed, A sailor's knot!!!
I'm lucky if I can tie a regular knot. LOL The Pacific Blue is the perfect color to go with the rest of the card. You did an all around great job with this set. I'm off to work on the deck. Talk later. Enjoy your Saturday.

Lovely, Carol, I just ordered the saliboat one and the new nautical paper to go with it. I can't wait to get my order, especially after seeing your great nautical card!
