Lets Go Sailing!

This card was made with my brand new stamp set from The Angel Company called Ship Collage Its a single stamp and its only $5.95! Its a great stamp for a man card. Navy Blue cardstock is perfect for a man card!

I made this one to put in my card box for an upcoming holiday for the guy in my family. I didnt add a sentiment yet.

The coloring was done with my prisma pencils and some varied palette ink colors to achieve a nautical look with blues and reds. All from The Angel Company.

I also used my yummy spellbinders to create that scallop shape. I need more spellbinder shapes.
