All Things Nautical

Hello stampers.  Welcome to my blog.  Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Seize the Sketch.

This card combines elements from 3 different stamp sets that all have a nautical/sea theme - By the Tide, Wetlands and The Open Sea.  I chose a palette of browns (Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso), which wasn't really my intent - it just worked out that way.

On the lower Crumb Cake panel, I used the Hardwood (luv it!) background stamp inked with Chocolate Chip ink.  I have tried using many different combinations of papers and ink with that stamp and they all look great.
Hope you have enjoyed this card.  Thanks for stopping by.
