Hello friends! Have you noticed the nautical themes lately? I adore them and the challenge over at The City Crafter is a play on words ... "It's a Shore Thing". How cute is that? I'm thinking warm sand in shades of brown and tan, seashells everywhere as you wade through the waves of clear blue water, and tall ships in the distance on the horizon.
Baja Breeze cardstock is the perfect shade of aqua for this card. Layered with print papers from a Clearance Rack Find ... Autumn Meadows (on the left) and a scrap from my drawer (on the right). Inks are shades of Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist. The stamp set you'll recognize as The Open Sea .. I've used it before here. A translucent envelope creates a different look while the ship is bordered with a decorative punch. Pins and Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine peek out from behind shabby seam binding dyed in blue and soft yellow.
My handmade burlap flower rests on white velvet leaves. I'm not sure I've ever made a "brown" flower before, but here the color works. A bit of lace, a black button, and a sweet little seashell (thank you Shirley) sits on top. My sentiment asks you to remember Our Journey ... a word within a word and so fun.
The inspiration piece is fabulous as are the projects posted by the Design Team! Be sure you pay a visit to see all the wonderful "sea-nery" over at The City Crafter. Sorry, I just had to do that.
Thanks again for stopping by.
