Seascape

I really should be going to bed but I just had to share what I created tonight. I haven't had time to do much creating lately as I was rearranging my studio. It still isn't completed but I had to stop and stamp. The stamps are from Magnolia and perfect for guy cards. The ship scene was stamped, colored with copics, accented with stickles then left to dry. Two more images were stamped. One was colored just around the port hole and both portholes were cut out. A piece of acetate is in between the two portholes and the put over the ship but under the waves which were cut with an X-acto knife.  Some more stickles were added to the waves. Nailhead stickers are on the porthole. A nestabilitiy die was used to cut out the dark blue. The pelican is a Magnolia stamp also and colored with copics. Red nailhead stickers are in the corners and the other corner has a silver circle clip. Hope you enjoy this creation. And as always I really do appreciate your comments.
I entered this card in the 7 kids challenge red, white and blue blog here.

Well done, Peggie! Love the idea of a 'real' porthole using the acetate. Super coloring and the stickles really add some depth!
