Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Sea Scape ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is a million miles away from my usual style ...  No Bling ... and not a ribbon or a flower in sight.

This is one of the new Sheena Douglass    "Little Bit Sketchy" stamps and is called Sea Scape

I have stamped it onto water color card with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.

I moved the ink around with a little water and a fine brush to give the appearance of water coloring.

The boat was stamped separately and then decoupaged onto the front.   It is a very masculine card and would suit a number of occasions and although out of my comfort zone I do like the card.

All Sheenas' stamps are available from Crafters Companion  ... and what a good way to spend the £25 voucher if you should win one of them.     Add your name to the list   to be in with a chance

But guess what I have done ..... Don't ask me how or why but for some reason I ordered the same stamp set .... twice !!   Now how stupid is that  ...   and it's not the first time I have done that either.  It must be my age

I can't be bothered sending them back so they will be added to a future "Give Away" for one lucky person to win them.  So watch this space in the coming months

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Great card. I love the use of distress inks. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. A lovely card. I always find it hard making cards for males. Thanks for sharing your ideas

  3. Although I usually like the fussy layered feminine styled cards, I'm always more than happy to do a card with a lighthouse scene. So I thought it was great to see you do a card like this. Besides, who doesn't like a good lighthouse ? :) Great card, love the stamp !!

  4. A very" Different "card but equally as good and as useful as all the others - your ideas and videos are much appreciated. Thank you Margaret W

  5. Lovely card and I can relate to the age thing Christina! xXx

  6. Hi Christina, im new to all this card making stuff, ive just bought the crafters companion pro, im confused with all the other boards, ie ive seen the envelop creator and a top score board.....arnt these already built into the pro? sooooooo confusing with all the other bits and bobs, ive been on crafters companion website but im stll no wiser x

  7. A wonderful Male card which are quite a problem most times. Love your use of the Distress inks and what a fab image!

  8. Like the card Christina, its good to try something different every now and again. You're not on your own ordering something twice I've done it before now, did feel daft but hey ho not to worry.

  9. Wow, great card!.... but I AM shocked!... you are right, no ribbon or flowers in sight... not even bling! You are so talented. I'm glad you stepped outside your comfort zone! Would love to see more like this, even feminine ones :)

  10. Hi Christina,
    Great mans card, glad I'm not the only silly one, I've ordered more than one embossing board before, never mind my good friend made good use of it.

  11. Hi Christina, as always a really lovely card, making cards for the fella's is so hard isn't it? This is really lovely though! Love the decoupage of the boat looking like it is coming at you through the frame!
