CASE'd Nautical Card - 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello Delightful friends and family!

Here is a card I colored for a co-worker (Happy Belated to Andy!) and it was CASE'd from this card HERE by Wanda Guess (one of my very favorite crafty gals!) I have to say my card is a simple version of the original.  Here is the LINK to Wanda's blog.  Go get inspired!

My stripes go the opposite direction than Wanda's but I've used the same technique with  Distress Paint (Broken China) and I used my washi tape to line out the stripes before using the paint.  The sentiment is from MFT and the Mini Blueprints Strip Mariner by Tim Holtz were colored with Copics, I've added a small piece of burlap and hemp beneath the anchor and captain's helm that I've fussy cut out and layered.  The banner flag is from AveryElle and I've used an EK Success star punch to embellish. I've used Antique Linen to distress the edges of the striped layer.  

I will be sharing this card at 30 Day Color Challenge and Cardz 4 Guyz  #74(texture)

Thanks for looking and have a great Friday!

The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 6:23
