Nauticalia

Hello everyone and thank you for your kind thoughts about my hubby. He's fine today apart from apparently, "a dull ache", and is eating OK although he has to be careful for a week or so - lots of fish and pasta on the menu! I also had to cut his pasta up for dinner yesterday and mash some veg so it was a bit like feeding a child again!
I have a card to share that I actually made for his birthday just before Christmas and forgot to post on here so it's here now as it fits several challenges.


It's quite bright as I was thinking of a sunset when I coloured the image panel. The ship collage and the text on the background paper are from the Aspects of Design 02 - Nautical set. This is available from The Stamp Man.  I stamped the collage in VersaFine Smoky Gray and coloured it with various shades of Distress inks.
I made the background paper using the Tim Holtz compass mask and Distress inks and stamped the nautical text on with Faded Jeans Distress ink.

I'm entering the card in the following challenges:
Cards For Men - Water
Creative Craft World - Male Card/Project
Moving Along With The Times - For A Male

Thanks for looking.
