Monochromatic The Sea

Hello!  I'm sharing this card here and on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog a monochromatic card I made with the stamp set The Sea.  To make it a bit more dramatic, I made an alteration of the telescoping technique.  After sponging the sea and sky and stamping the image, I die cut three concentric circles with the smallest centering on the boat.

 I then popped up the outermost ring with one layer of foam tape, kept the middle ring flat, and then popped up the center with two layers of foam tape.  I liked how you still get a dramatic effect yet the card is not too thick.  I then added the banner with the Scripture from Mark and touches of white with a gel pen.
