Vintage Sailor

Good morning,

I'm sharing my LLC DT card today and the theme this week is "Sun, Sea      .  It's about this time of year when we are all thinking about holidays.  I have chosen to use a Pion Design image accompanied by the Pion Design Seashore collection.

The image is layered onto the Square from the Square and Chandelier die set.

I have cut the star die from the Writings Paper sheet (all links at the bottom), and the Pion Design Palette and added a little Aged Silver Frantage.

I tried to leave elements of the papers showing and really love the dragonfly so ensured you could see this detail on the paper.

I have also added a little bottle, cockle shell, Pion Design cut butterflies from the Borders sheet and I have used the Aged Silver to emboss the Dutch Doobadoo A5 paper art Nautical chain.  I also diecut an anchor and added the Aged Silver frantage and then put it back in the die to emboss and bring out all the detail.

I have used the paper to diecut a wave ensuring I got the text in  I then added a border of seashells from the 6 x 6 paper    . Sandy has got some really tiny seashells into store and I followed the line of seashells from the paper and added them all along the bottom.

I diecut two tags and added a nautical button and vax cord to one and a tankard charm to the other.

Hope you like it :)

The layers and the embellishment work on this card are fantastic; I love the fact that you've managed to show so much of the DPs even though there are quite a few embellishments, and believe it or not, I don't even miss the flowers! :-)
