This image is from Impression Obsession and it's called Ocracoke Island Lighthouse, it's just so beautiful. I stamped it onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with my SU markers and the aqua painter. I did a bit of masking for the sun and the lighthouse, the rest was quick and easy. The sentiment was stamped using the retired SU set called "Curly Cute" in Baked Brown Sugar ink. I die cut it with THIS Spellbinders die set.
I made a Sailor's Knot using THIS TUTORIAL, I just used 2 pieces of Hemp thread instead of one to give it a bit more bulk.
This is one of the easiest knots and it really gives Nautical cards that really great detail.
The card base was stamped using the fabulous SU stamp set called The Open Sea, this is one of my most favorite sets for Masculine cards.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card, I used two of the other stamps in this set.
The sentiment is from another beautiful, retired SU set called "On the Grow".
Here are the banners that inspired my card.
This Lighthouse photo is truly beautiful.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
