The background of this card was made with one of the green Moonshadow Inks, I used textured card that had not been used that was in one of the fill with as much you can fit in for a tenner boxes. As it was so textured it hadn't been one I'd normally stamp on but is ideal for background techniques. I gave it a wash with the ink and left it to dry, the mica has fallen into the grooves leaving a lovely effect.
The scroll was made from thin card, I applied the ink onto it with first a wash, then drizzled the ink on top using a detail paint brush. The piece was then wound around cocktail sticks at each end. I made some holes and threaded through some white cord that I'd coloured with the inks to give it a vintage feel.
The galleon was detailed painted, cut out and layered with silicone glue. The wording piece of card was torn and I painted round the edges to give it more definition. The brads were attached and the piece was again attached with silicone glue.
With Father's Day coming soon I will be showing more cards that may help with ideas. I thought this would be a suitable card. I used the Aspects of Design Nautical stamp sheet that has a Happy Father's Day stamp on it that I will be showing another time.
