As You See It Nautical Collage

The theme for As You See It Challenge #038 this week is Collage Stamping!  I love collage stamping and was excited to do the challenge.  I settled, after a bit of thought, on a Nautical Theme, and, of course, nautical means Night of Navy, but I hadn't thought to pair it with Calypso Coral until I saw it on a Pinterest colour palette.

Here's where I found my colour scheme:
Navy and Coral

  • Nothing is more nautical than The Open Seas Stamp Set, and I put it to good use in the background collage.  I added more images from the retiring set, Hello Sailor using Night of Navy, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray Ink.  I finished with a sprinkle of Calypso Coral using one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps.
  • The Bravo sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts and I have it shadowed with a second flag, die cut with Bitty Banners framelits
  • I love the texture from the Burlap Ribbon across the middle and I learned to tie a sailor's knot using linen thread and Island Indigo Baker's Twine.
  • Here you get a closer look at the Sailor's Knot I learned to tie. I also love the way you can add Whisper White candy dots to simulate a porthole around the oval matte for the sailing ship. 
  • Here's the way you tie a sailor knot:
My son-in-law will just be finishing up a trip on a sailing vessel for the men's church group to which he belongs. What an adventure he will be able to tell about!
