My Time To Craft 'All At Sea' Challenge

Good morning all, I hope you are all keeping well and the weather is the being kind to you.

It is time for another challenge at My Time To Craft and this week we are 'All At Sea' so anything that is related to the ocean, that means boats, fish, dolphins, lighthouses etc.  

For my card I used two stamps that I have had for years, I brought these plus many others from an artist in America to make cards for my husband's scuba diving students. They are really nice stamps made of the thick red rubber and attached to cling mount and every stamps gives such a beautiful clear image and they were really cheap even with the shipping. I did something with this card that I never normally do in that I stamped my two images, found my paper and cut my die cut then put it all together BEFORE I coloured my image. Normally I would stamp, find papers then colour before anything else and with this once I had done all the above I looked at it and thought I don't want to colour it I like it as it is. Another first for me and why, why, why didn't I think of this when I couldn't colour properly. It certainly made for a quick make card.

Supplies:-
6" Scalloped Card Blank - Natalie & Amy's
Card Stock - Bazzill
Designer Paper - DCWV 'Adhesive Stack'
Image - Unknown
