Nauti-cal

I joined a Swap group over at SCS- and Kelly was the 1st hostess- with a theme of Nauti-cal.

 I watercolored the image from Impression Obsession on Confetti cardstock and used some older SU DP for the card base.

 And, I also made a 2nd card:
 For this card, I used an image from Our Daily Bread Designs. I sponged on color and added kept the design CAS. I bought this image over 3 years ago, and am just inking it up for the first time......

Challenges:
Retro Rubber challenge- Brads and  use an image  1 yr old (mine is 3 yrs old) for 2nd card.
Come and Get it- Things that start with B- boat- card #1

Thanks for stopping by!
