A Really Fun Challenge



I loved today's challenge at SCS! What a fun card to make....so many possibilities on this one, I know I will use it a lot! This card is pretty straightforward, no special techniques other than distressing one side of the diagonal. Since I have a lot of nautical-loving guys in my DH's family, I can see me using this set from Impression Obsession a lot! I used a little clip from my Hodgepodge Hardware to keep the card closed, and added a small piece of twill fastened with a matching brad, just for some interest. I have left the inside blank so I can stamp a sentiment when I need one. I think this is a versatile set that could be used for lots of occasions! Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Nautical (Impression Obsession), TresChic, Winds of Grace
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Soft Sky, River Rock, Confetti White, Western Sky DP
Ink: Not Quite Navy Craft & Classic, River Rock, Soft Sky
Acc: Distresser, Antique Brass HPH, Twill, Sponge Dauber
