OWH VCMP Challenge #12: Boats & Ships

Hi again! Now on to Operation Write Home’s* VCMP Challenge #12: Boats and Ships Set sail and join in this challenge by creating a card with a BOAT OR SHIP image. If you missed my first post of today, you can click here to see it.

OWH VCMP12

The beautiful ship stamp is from Inspired by Stamping’s Ahoy Matey stamp set. I stamped it in Pinecone Versacolor Ink. If anyone has a solution to making sure the ink is even on a stamp like this, please let me know.

I popped the ship and the frame up with dimensional dots.

Lots of sponging and distressing on the papers to “age” them.

In addition to the OWH VCMP challenge, I made this card for:

Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge since this will be sent to our troops and will make it’s way home to a friend or loved one.

*Operation Write Home: Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my card. I’m not sure this is a favorite of mine because I think it turned out a little dark. Please let me know what you think!

hugs,

Ellen
