Nautical Thanks...


This week we've got another great ColourQ combo this week...

These colours seemed perfect for a masculine card to me, so I pulled out the Word Map stamp (which my dear friend Evi was kind enough to give me for my birthday!) and had fun colouring in...

I thought the blues and green would be perfect for colouring this map - I stamped it with Night of Navy on Whisper White and coloured with an aquabrush and inkpads. The tags were created with the Angled Tag Topper punch and I added the anchor (from The Open Sea) over the top, cutting with a combination of circle framelit and punch.

I used the sketch from Seize the Sketch for my layout...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: World Map, The Open Sea, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Marina Mist
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango, Naturals White, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Brights candy dots, linen thread
Tools: 1/2" & 1 3/4" circle punches, Angled Tag Topper punch, Circle framelits, Itty Bitty Banner framelits

Make sure you check out all the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Royal Court this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
