Thanks-SSD#84 and Nautical Color Trends Challenge


So I started out to participate in the Color Trends--Nautical Challenge.  Guess what?  Going through all my stamps, I discovered I don't own any nautical stamps!  How can that be?  I forced myself not to zip to a nearby craft store.  Instead, I made myself utilize what I had in my stash.  Inspired by the Skipping Stones Design Sketch, which just screamed life preserver.  I pulled out my clip art books, printed off a couple of anchors.  I used silver Smooch to paint them.  Then I used Glossy Accents to give it some depth and shine.  Using Echo Park Paper--A walk in the Park collection, I created the life preserver and waves (with the help of my Fiskar paper punch).  I added some twine and a sentiment--my nautical card--without spending a cent!
