Vintage Sailing

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with another one of the cards of mine to challenge myself to use what I already own to craft with and to create outside of my comfort zone!
I stamped the ship in brown memento and coloured with Promarkers, I then cut round with a nestie. I then coloured round the edge with Rusty Hinge Distress ink and mounted on shimmery brown cardstock cut with a scalloped nestie. I then used Bo Bunny papers as my base and left the bottom left hand corner open where I stamped the accent stamps directly on the Kraft card base with Black Memento. I then used a Memory box die to cut a border out of gold shimmer card and placed along the bottom, then added My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow fibres as my border on the opening edge of the card. Lastly I used wooden buttons as my embellishments.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

That Craft Place: Vintage
Paper Crafting Journey: Anything Goes
