Tueday Taggers theme this week was 'messing about in boats' (!) or water .

I love these sketch stamps - not mine unfortunately - but they have such a 'peaceful' quality about them and I have a few stamped images courtesy of a crafting friend . This one fitted the challenge perfectly.

I coloured the image with promarkers and made use of the new stash of Nestabilities to cut out.

The edging is a Martha Stewart punch. The ships wheel I found in my stash whilst I was looking for an anchor or shell or similar to put on the card - I'd forgotten all about it but it looks just fine!! I resisted the usual tempation to overload with flowers/ribbons/embellishments - I wanted the image to really be the focal point and like the simplicity and clean lines of the finished card.
I have also submitted the card to the ABC Challenge - B is for Blue.


  1. Hiya Viv. This is such a serene and peaceful card. Love the background, which really highlights that fab image. I love the ships wheel, it adds that really special touch. Beautiful. Happy crafting.
    With love, Sandra xx
