First I matted turquoise cardstock on a very light cream card base. That was followed with a layer which was stamped with a selection of stamps from Clearly impressed nautical. The stamped background was then embossed with Spellbinders M-Bossibilities garden lattice. Lightly sponged with Ranger ink in denim and rust. I love the 'rope' image for this nautical theme. The ship is from the same nautical stamp set.
