All at Sea ...

I recently had the great pleasure of being asked to guest design for Ooh La La Creations for the month of August - how exciting is that!   This is my second challenge and the theme is 'All at Sea', make sure you pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog where you will find lots of great inspiration and full details of the challenge.

I chose the lovely image 'Devon' from the Water Colour Memories CD, it took me ages to decide which image to use because there are some gorgeous ones to choose from, this is my card:

I printed the image on water colour card and layered everything onto Core'dinations card stock.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below:

This inside of my card has been decorated to complement the front:


Image: Ooh La La Creations - Water Colour Memories CD
Papers:  Ooh La La Creations - Water Colour Memories CD
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Nautical Frame and Accents and Classic Squares (inside card)
Embellishments:  string from stash

A beautiful scene. I love the knotted rope and the krafty waves at the bottom. I really like how you've done the sentiment too. I don't normally get tempted by CDs as I prefer my stamps, but this one does look really good!
