Ocean Week 2

It is the second week of Art with no Boundaries and the Design Team came up with a new crop of fabulous cards. 

The challenges run over 2 weeks so the theme is still 
Ocean, Aquatic, Nautical.

I chose to work with one of the new sentiments from CSDesigns.


I decided on a more masculine look. My image is a scanned map from an old map book and a picture of a ship. I combined the 2 images in Fireworks and made the ship more transparent. The sentiment was coloured and lightly sponged. The image and sentiment was layered onto cardstock. A piece of rough rope was added, after it was knotted. 

CSDesigns sentiments are pieces of art and it is so much fun to use them on my cards, either as the focus point or accompanying one of the fabulous CSdesign images. They also compliment any other image you may decide to use. I think this card showcase the versatility of the designs, from CAS to cute to arty and everything inbetween.

But don't let me keep you, do visit Art with no Boundaries and show us your fabulous Aquatic creation. Remember, it can be anything that fits into the theme, using any image. The important thing is to join us, have fun, visit the other entries, leave love, meet new friends, become a follower. Wow, all in one sentence!
