A Nautical Theme

Hi Folks

Today I would like to share a nautical themed card using a JOFY stamp from PaperArtsy for the main feature.  In case you would like to get your hands on this stamp and it is certainly one of my favourites, it is JOFY Mini 17.

For the background I have used a Creative Expressions pinpoint embossing folder called Ocean Waves and to finish I have die cut the ship's wheel from Sue Wilson's Nautical Accessories CED21004.  I cut this from white card, coloured it with a brown alcohol marker and when it was completely dry I put a good thick coat of Glossy Accents on it.  Sadly the gloss is completely lost in this picture but it did look like polished mahogany on the real thing - honest!

Well that is my little offering for today - I hope this finds you fit and well and enjoying the sunshine.

Bye for now


  1. Ann this is a delight - love that embossing folder, and it is perfect for the theme of you card. The wheel must look fabulous IRL
