Take Time

     This is the second military retirement card. (Check out the previous posting to see the first). For this one I stamped the ship on kraft card stock and colored the masts with white prisma colored pencil. The water is colored with indigo blue, then highlighted with white to form capped waves. The embossing folder is from Carta Bella. I dragged a white pigment ink pad over the embossing, allowing the compasses to pick up the ink.
Card and Envelope
     The outside and inside sentiments are actually all one stamp, but I used the MISTI to stamp "Take time" on the front - ultimately separating it from the rest of the stamp.
     I feel that the compasses and the ship give this card the naval feel.
