Inspired by....Nautical



Another hot trend for Spring Summer 2015 is the Nautical theme.
It’s a trend that often makes a comeback over the years. From Nautical stripes, to anchors, portholes to luxury yachts add sophistication and seaside style using these themes in your card making projects.

I have used a Nautical stamp from Magnolia Rubber Stamps along the bottom of my card, with a hand painted watercolour wash as a backdrop. I like the graduation of colour on this. I also added waves of acrylic paint interference medium in opal blue for a subtle sheen that catches the light for a wet look. I applied this to the sun as well on the stamped image.

I designed the sentiment layer and layered onto an inked background circle cut with Fiskars paper edgers. Die cut flourishes (by Marianne Design Dies) echo the wash of the waves with stick-on jewels and sheer ribbon adding sparkle.

I was pleased with the results. What do you think?
Have you created a nautical themed project?
