Beyond the sea

Been playing about with masking for this card, another chance to use my old favourite lighthouse stamp,the girl and the boats are from Butterfly stamps ( are they still around? haven't been at the show the last few times) Also used my watercolours which are something else that doesn't get used so much these days. Fashionable stamping challenge this time is nautical so hope this fits.  I bought some Hobby Art stamps at the last show after seeing loads of lovely cards made with them, I spent ages yesterday playing with them and produced ziltch ! I don't have a problem with masking usually but I just didn't seem to get the hang of those stamps, think they may end up in the "unloved and unused" drawer !


  1. A gorgeous card with fabulous images Joan and yes perfect for the FSC nautical challenge - thanks for joining us.

  4. Fabulous stamping Joan, you have created a beautiful scene, the stamps go together perfectly and so finely coloured. Thanks so much for sharing with us at FSC. xx

  5. This is beautiful Joan, so gentle and pretty. I hate it when I buy a stamp and then can't do a thing with it, it happens to me all the time. Have a great weekend x
