This week's color challenge colors of Bashful Blue, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake screamed nautical to me and I've recently started working on cards for Operation Write Home which posted this sketch http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/201...+and+Stamps%29 for a challenge. I widened the strips just a bit so I could emboss them with the stars. I stamped my Crumb Cake base first with the weathered bg stamp in Crumb Cake with some Early Espresso thumped on, then with the log book and globe also in Early Espresso. My image panel is Natural White which I stamped the ship image on in Bashful Blue 3 times then Night of Navy. I masked these and over stamped the Script bg in Early Espresso. I distressed the edges, crumpled and sponged with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. The anchor is embossed in Pewter on night of navy then torn and layered over a Bashful Blue oval also distressed. I pulled a piece of Burlap string for another accent.
