CCEE Stampers-Nautical


Kathy gave the challenge for a nautical-type card this week for the CCEE Stampers. My card is a bit small being 4 x 4. It started out as a tent topper but it just wouldn't work with my larger image. So, this is it and I do like it just the same.  I love nautical cards and this makes me want to head to the beach.

I colored my boat with Copics, sponged some clouds,  and added a seashell. The images are all from a soon-to-be released set from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company called Silly Shells. It is a super set.

Come on over to CCEE Stampers and make a nautical card..it can be a ship, lighthouse, boat, etc.
Just link up with us...we would love to see your creations.

Of course the main color would be blue......doesn't EVERY guy choose that as his favorite? Good job combining the challenges, Brenda!

Perfect nautical card. Love the clouds you created.

The shell is great - a good shell set would be a lovely thing to have for dressing up seaside cards with. Lovely boat image too - that shade of blue just makes me think of Greece. Instead of which I see grey skies and rain!!
