Beyond the Sea

I again worked on a simple tag card with a masculine theme sporadically this week in between other tasks and finally finished it today. I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week in which one is to use a tag.


I used a strip of leftover glossy card stock to which I had added Blue Bister powders and then spritzed with water. I always felt this was a great frothing sea water in my mind so I decided to make it a sea scene on the tag.

The ship image which was originally by Ink Blocks is now owned by I Brake For Stamps and the sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Beyond the Sea 2 set. I stamped the ship with adding two different shades of brown to it. I layered light blue and brown card stocks against the main card of ivory. My tag uses twine on it and was also layered onto the light blue card stock. I then added a few blue rhinestones here and there on the brown layer. The card was finished with the addition of the wood ships steering wheel.

Well, I have dishes awaiting me and then it will be time to start on the evening meal plans. Have a great weekend everyone.

God bless,
Verna

Your water is perfect - love the effect that Bistros has on glossy card stock. Great tag card, and that wooden wheel is just the perfect final touch!

Makes a beautiful scene. and yes, it makes the perfect water for the ship. Hope this is not the second one for you to cancel. Many times says publishing and nothing comes up, so have to redo, and other times comes up either published or waiting for approval. :)
