Modes of Transport

The lovely ladies over at The Artful Times have chosen Sam to set the fortnightly challenge the theme being "Mode of Transport"  I had a good rummage in my stamps box and decided on a Sailing ship scene stamp.(Sorry if you have had enough of water LOL).
I have had this for ages and never used it. I made a card this is such a departure from my comfort zone for me. I used watercolour paper and stamped the image, then coloured with a mixture of watercolour paint and DI Inks, tore the edges and inked up then rubbed silver metallic around the image. The backing paper had a lovely sea look to it with text running through it. I finished off with eyelets and stamped the words on calico. I actually enjoyed making this card. Thanks so much for looking and the lovely comments. Hugs Sandra XXX

A lovely card and what a nice touch that calico has given to the overall appearance of the card. Must remember that idea.
