To create this card， I used a card base and pattered papers from Canvas Home Basics. The stars and chevron pattern was cut from Navy &； Ivory 5 Point Star as well as Navy &； Kraft Mini Dot Reverse.
To create the front of the card， I simply cut a piece of the Mini Dot Reverse to fit the front of my card and then glued it down. I then fussy cut stars out of the Point Star and small pieces of chevron from the Chevron and set them aside.
Then， I cut out a shape from some sea themed paper that I had –； the Voiler paper is a great alternative –； and a fun sea themed phrase and set it aside.
I then？painted the charms from 7 Gypsies are with High Impact Metallic Paint.
I think arranged the cutouts， the charms and some other fun embellishments I had to the front of the card and glued everything down.To finish of the card I added chipboard， a piece of twine and a couple of stickers. The chipboard circle was painted with High Impact paints.
Hope you enjoyed my little nautical card today.
Beautiful card Marie! We are in love with it over here at the home office. We love the rich color， pattern and layering that you incorporated into this masterpiece!

Did you know that Tattered Angels mists react so cool with water? What it means is that even once they’re on paper, you can still play with them using water – you can dilute the colour, do ‘ghost prints’, etc. Add some white gesso to it and you have even more options – lighten the?colours, add texture… fun, fun fun!
