Old Salt

I have made a card today for a couple of challenges - this weeks' theme at LIM is Masculine so I've taken that and used the current colours from our Waltzingmouse challenge to come up with this:

I embossed the boat and sentiment from Ocean Bound in vanilla white onto a stitched edge journalling card and then stamped the hills from Way Out West in dark blue before blending the sky in purple (around a masked moon) and the sea in blue distress inks.  I used a pearl spritz to give the moonlight some shimmer in the sky and on the sea.   I used the rope from Tying the Knot to add a little decoration to the base card before adhering the panel.

You've still got until Thursday to join in with our colour at Waltzingmouse Fanatics...........

See you tomorrow for my Make the Day Special Stamp Store post.


  1. Tara - this is brilliant! I love the blended sea and sky, and the moon positively glows! Great card!

  2. This is fab Tara. Love the scene you`ve created and the rope edge just finishes it off nicely.
