Wind to the sails

I have one clean and simple card to share with you. It is suitable as birthday card or even a graduation card. I tried to follow the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches - sss158.

I'll try to explain how I made it. I did a lots of digital stamping on it. Light blue paper is a digi paper from Computer Scrapbook (absolutely love this place) from collection named Essence 3. All compasses and birds are PhotoShop brushes: Nautical Brushes by ~BohemianResources. Texts in front and inside of the card is also added in Photoshop.

Ship is a digi stamp from Digi Doodle. I colored it with Tim Holz Distress ink - Broken China and with regular water base markers and water brush. Also added some Pergamono white gel pen on top of the waves and some drops of Glossy Accents. Glossy accent is also on popped-up compass piece and ship windows.

Edges of the DP and image are distressed with craft knife and  Broken China Distress ink. I matted papers on dark blue heavy weight paper. It was my first attempt to make a monochromatic card. I assumed that then I make a monochromatic card, it will be blue :o) It's my favorite color. And along with nautical theme... Love it :o)

Inside of the card
