By The Sea

Oh no, it's that time of year again, and I need a guy card!! This was going to be a square card, but it slowly evolved into a rectangle. The squares have been coloured with blue and yellow alcohol inks then stamped with archival. The stamps are a mixture of MSE, The Stampman, and Kanban. I've heat embossed the ship wheel - phew, this really makes the AI's smoke - maybe not a good idea lol. All matted onto some Bazzil Bling, so lots of lovely sheen, and a bit of bakers twine to finish. The background paper has been distress rolled at the edges to give it a 'treasure map' feel. Ta da that's that done for another year lol.
I'm entering this into the following challenges
Pan Pastels - One For The Boys
Let's Ink It Up - Distressing

I now have to say goodbye to my computer for a week, I've got a CD stuck in it and it needs to go away for repair. I know life goes on but....:o)
Thanks very much for looking and enjoy your Sunday x
