Maritime Card

Hi everyone :-D  

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. :-D

Last week, two of my co-workers had a birthday. I made for both of them nautical themed cards, since we work at shipping company. They liked them! :-D

Today I want to share with you first one I made, it's this Maritime Card. I'll share the second card tomorrow.

I used adorable Whiff Of Joy digital stamp 'Henry with Seagull'

I printed the image on a white paper (160 grams), colored it with colored pencils and blended colors using paper stumps and baby oil. 

I cut a piece of blue Origami paper and glued it on a card base, as well as panel with colored image. I embellished card with two banner stickers, wood arrows, gauze and starfish. 

Card dimensions are 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4").
