My first nautical stamp set arrived, and I've had a horrible time finding mojo. I wasn't sure if it was the nautical theme tripping me up, or just a random creative slump. I fought through earlier today to create a card combining a challenge to use color wash technique over at StampNation, and to create a nautical card over at The Card Concept.
So here is my clean and layered attempt at a nautical card. My color washed background is supposed to emulate sky and sea.
The sailboat and seagulls were embossed in white once the color wash dried.
With one nautical card done and under my belt, I will hopefully find more mojo! One can hope.
