Ship Ahoy!

**This is a Magnificent Men promotion post. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.**
Hello crafters, Kirsten here again. After yesterday’s long post, I’d like to show you a quick & easy card.
The base layers are, from the bottom, a 7x7 white card blank, kraft card, black card & patterned papers from the Woodware Vintage Prints 1 6x6 paper pad.
I painted a piece of the Anna Marie Designs die cut trellis card with black paint, then added
Light Copper Sparkle Medium to it & used Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear glue to stick it to the base papers.


 The image & sentiment are from the HobbyArt Butterfly Kisses Nautical stamp set. I stamped the image with Cocoa Versacolor ink & die cut with a Spellbinder’s labels die, stamped it again in
Rose Red Versacolor & cut out just the sails, which were glued on top of the original image. This is a lovely collaged image, but it looked quite busy against the rest of the card, so I drew a border with a fine liner black pen & matted it on black card.
I stamped the quote with Black Versacolor & added embellishments in the shape of a

Nautical Clear Stamp Set   Vintage 1 Perfect Prints   Vintage Selection - Buckle Slider 9pcs   Crafts Too Vintage Selection - Brads 140 pcs     Die- cut Trellis Card  Sparkle Medium Light Copper   Versacolor Black   Versacolor Cocoa  Versacolor Rose Red
This is my final post of the promotion fortnight, but there are still posts to come from Lisa, Georgina & Suzanne, so remember to keep commenting. I'll be back next week.  Until then, happy crafting.
