It's time for another IO challenge. This week's theme is a beach or nautical themed card. This is easy for me, because I LOVE lighthouses! Here's my card:Rowboat' stamp image and colored it with Copics. I was having a hard time coming up with patterned paper appropriate for a nautical theme, until I remembered I had this woodgrain impression plate from PTI. I ran it through with some Core'dinations Whitewash paper and sanded away to reveal the red grain. I LOVE this paper! Doesn't it look like some old, weathered, painted wood?!
Then I rummaged through my huge stash of craft supplies and found some of this white cord. Perfect for a nautical rope embellishment. I threaded it through some eyelets and left the ends to fray like real rope. I desperately wanted to add an anchor charm, or a ship wheel, but had nothing like it. :-( If I come across one, I'm adding it to this card later on.
Thanks for visiting!
