oh sailor boy.....

Hi All,

Today's card is a nice simple card, using a Whimsy Stamp 'The little captain' designed by Crissy Armstrong. I love this stamp, and i was lucky enough to win it on a Whimsy stamps blog Hop(so pleased...). It is currently on offer at Whimsy Stamps.

I Stamped the image onto white card and coloured it in using my Promarkers, i then Die cut (Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle Die)it out and matted it onto dark blue card.  The background is some textured white card stamped faintly with a Kanban Sea stamp and Versamark, then brushed over with Stamps Away Pearl Mica powder, i then matted it onto blue card. I finally wrapped some of my favourite Twine around the card, and attached a 'with love' message.

I hope you like it, i do he is so cute it reminds me of my little boys.....they both are proper blondies!!!

I love the twine because it was the first roll of twine i ever brought, and it is so useful on all different types of crafts, i have now got quite a few colours to choose from, but i think i have used the blue the most.

I would love to enter this card into the following Challenges
