A little vintage sailing for the One Stop Craft Challenge

My second posting of the day - this time for  One Stop Craft Challenge.  This week our theme is Monochrome.  Remember it does not have to be a card, but you do have to follow the theme for the week, and there are lots of lovely examples by the DT's over on the challenge blog.  We are sponsored this week by Robyns's Fetish.  If you pop over to her shop you will find an array of digi stamps and papers.

For my card I have gone a little vintagey again. 




I have layered some map paper on to green Bazzill card.  The ship image has been stamped on to a piece of Range Manila card which I have used distress inks on.  The image is Crafty Individuals, and the birds flying across the sky are mini stamps from the Tim Holtz clear stamp set, Visual Artistry.  For embellishments I have used an anchor charm which is coloured with Alchohol ink and distress ink, and a couple of Ideology bits - a cog with a game spinner, and a pin with an addage ticket, which I overstamped with some more words.  Along the bottom of the green mount card I have used my new Fiskars border punch.


I am entering this for the following challenges:

Card Making Mamas - Embellish it
Fabulous Friday - Brads - I have one brad in my game spinner
Fairy Tale Challenge - Happy Birthday - this is a birthday card but I generally do not put sentiments on until I know who the card is for
Delightful Challenges - Sun, Sea and Sand - well I have sea - hope that counts
Stamping Vacation - Vintage and Map
Cooking it up with Katie - Scallops, Monochromatic
Paper Shelter Challenge - Anything Goes
Claudia & Co - Monochromatic
My Time to Craft - Nautical
Paper Take Weekly - Anything goes + the option of something new - my stamp is new
Make it Monday - Anything goes
