CCNS82: Nautical elements

Hi, there!  It's time for this week's post for the Classy Cards 'n Such challenge: Cloudy Day. This is actually the third card I made with clouds - I'll share the others later.  It was hard to get started but once I did, I didn't want to stop!

I first started with Poppystamps Grand Madison Window.  I have a tendency to always use this die on white card stock because all my windows in my house have been made with white trim... as they are in most homes.  But there are some with beautiful natural wood color - not my style for home decor but I enjoy seeing it in others.  ;)  So I was inspired to stain mine using Walnut Stain.  I made a scene using Impression Obsession Mini Nautical Set, ODBD Clouds and Raindrops Die Set, and Impression Obsession Grass Border die.  The clouds and water were masked and sponged using Peacock Feathers and Broken China.  I also used some clear embossing with a fishing net background stamp from ODBD and then sponged the same colors over it.  I ripped off a strip and then added some of the other elements from the Mini Nautical Set as well as some clear dew drops.  Hope you like it and can play along ... several times!  :)

  1. I love anything nautical. This is really gorgeous!

  2. Wow. Best of the three. I'll be embarrassed to post mine! ;-)

    1. Don't be! You know I approve! -- Okay, that sounded rather snobby but you know what I mean. :)
