All at sea

My third post today - this rediscovered Kanban stamp set is really inspiring me!

This time I have used the lighthouse stamp, which I stamped and coloured with Promarkers, using a mixture of blues and aquas for the sea and then going over the water area and the foam at the edge on the shore with clear wink of Stella. I die cut a "porthole" in a sheet of woodgrain effect paper, with the boards running horizontally to look like part of a boat, and used two circle dies to cut a frame for it in silver card. The "rivets" on the porthole are tiny silver holographic dots left over from a previous project.

I am sharing this with

  1. What a fantastic card Jane. I love the woodgrain and porthole. The stamp has a great old fashioned feel to it too. The whole look of your card made me think of pirates. Barbxx

    1. Barb, you are a genius, I have a skull and crossbones die that I will pair with this stamp another time

  2. I love the way you've made that porthole, so clever. It makes a fabulous card. Cara x

  3. What a wonderful card! I love your scene through the porthole, and the wood grain paper is the perfect touch! :) Thanks for playing along in this weeks Mod Squad Challenge! :)

  4. So cleverly made into a porthole - love this idea and you've coloured the image beautifully.
