I do not make many cards that are not floral and feminine, so this was a true challenge for me. Using one of my Waltzingmouse sets that was suitable, the Ocean Bound set, and a spellbinders die set, so that my card could be very simple and not fussy, masculine, hopefully. I took inspiration from Claire and the Waltzingmouse Blog for the splatted sea stamp and a favourite Spellbinders die set was used.
Stamped using Marine Blue & Summer Sky inks with a kraft card contrast mount. My first choice with the Anchor.
Then tried out other sentiments from the set, for a "Bon Voyage" card
Final photograph is of a trio of cards all in the same style and colourways, my two previous cards and a third one with the sentiment "Anchors Away --- Sailor Boy" My thoughts were for another Bon Voyage travelling card.
Hope that you enjoyed looking at my designs, thank you for visiting
