A Colourful Open Sea

Hello all. 
As I type this, I have a Jessie cat sat on both my arms lol! I think she wants my attention!

I have a card here using The Open Sea again as I had a ship already stamped that I needed to use up. I was on Google looking for some inspiration when I came across this card, fell in love with the colours and decided to have a go myself...

I used my new sponge daubers to create the background of the boat...not at striking as Lulu's, but I like it nonetheless.

I stamped other images randomly over the Not Quite Navy card blank and also on the Natural Trim Ribbon. I used Mini Brads to create a porthole effect on my oval frame which I cut out using Oval Framelits.

Cardstock - Not Quite Navy, River Rock
Ribbon etc - Linen Thread
Stamps - The Open Sea, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink - Island Indigo, Perfect Pumpkin, Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade
Framelits - Ovals Collection
Other - Mini Brads
