Trade winds

After looking at Country view Challenges I took it upon myself to do my own little challenge of making a nautical card without using blue, I have a load of nautical style stamps as they are something I really like and they are so handy for masculine cards but I always make them tones of blue, everything just goes together then.  I have struggled with this card but I'm reasonably happy with the finished project. DP is from Portabella road pad, thought it looked vaguely sea like, the script stamp is a very old one from The Stampman, schooner is from Hunkydory, compass from Indigoblu, anchor from Kanban and wording from Artistic Outpost, no wonder my table was such a mess !

  1. I love everything nautical. You did fantastic job with braking out your safe colors. I think I wouldn't be able to do it.

  2. Hello Joan,
    It appears we all struggled a little with the theme Nautical, but we all completed the task wonderfully, and you have followed in our footsteps and created a wonderful card here, the elements look great and definitely relate nautical. Great card. Thank you for joining us again this month at CVC.

  3. Love this colour, its a fantastic design as well.

  4. Stunning nautical piece Joan, very clever stamping and very clever not to use any blue and still have it look so nautical! Really love how you combined all those stamps!!

    Thanks so much for adding it to our challenge at Coyntryview Challenges!

  5. Your non blue nautical card works brilliantly! I love all the different elements and texture and the script stamp works really well.

  6. Love those fabulous vintage images - the script and the ship are so beautiful. Great nautical card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Country View Challenges.
