Pals Paper Arts 281 The Open Sea

Hi everyone thanks for joining me todays card is for the PPS281 challenge.  I saw a card that my gorgeous friend Angela Lorenz did (she is so uber talented! don't you think?) and thought I have an idea for that.

So this is the card I came up with.  I can't say I am 100% in love with it but it's ok.  I am still learning what to do to get enough grunge (I get scared of messing up a card and wasting it (anyone know the feeling?)

I used The Open Sea stamp set and the spots out of the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  I used Very Vanilla cardstock for a base and Garden Green for my next layer.  The colours used were Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand.  The world stamped using marker to stamp as I wanted to colour the land green direct.  The latitude lines I used Crumb Cake.  I sponged the sea with Marina Mist.  I distressed the edges screwed it all into a ball and and sponged over the creases and around the edges.

Well I hope something here tickles your fancy. Be sure to leave a comment and don't forget to follow me by email so you don't miss any posts :)

Until next time stay well and happy crafting xx
