My favorite cards to make are masculine ones, and I love nautical themed cards. For this card I started off using several different colored inks to make the panel.
I didn't use any masking technique, I just stamped the images after inking and colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen on top.
I used 3 stamps from Heartfelt Creations, a postcard stamp I believe is from TPC and the border with different plants came free with a magazine ages ago.
The sentiment is a die cut one in Norwegian, I love the font and I think you'll see this on several cards in the future.

This card is for:
The Male Room - Song Title (I am Sailing - Rod Stewart)
Cardz 4 Guyz
- #304 Sports and/or Hobbies (Sailing)
We Love Stamping
- September Anything Goes with Stamping

You don't often hear people say they enjoy making masculine cards so I am sure many people will be jealous of your skill. This is a great card, I love how you have edged the watery scene with those grasses. what a great card. Thanks for sharing it with us at we love stamping this month xx

This is a masterpiece Pia! You and me are so different, and you know I'm not able too much to do masculine cards, so I admire very much all yours, and this is one of my favourite!! Such amazing atmosphere you nailed!! Very well done with stamping without masking and the touch of the postage stamp is just perfect to compliment the scene!
Thanks so much for joining us at We Love Stamping September challenge!
