Time for another card, this time one in brown and blue, featuring a nautical motif. And again, it's a stitched one - I guess I just can't get away from pickpoint :) Which is quite OK as I want to remind you of the August Fadengrafik challenge that says "On the beach". Join the fun and submit your stitched summer cards until September 1st.
Now, a few words on the card itself. Unlike my usual crafting process, which consists of stitching a motif and looking for everything alse afterwards, I first picked the background paper and then combined the rest.
I decided to stitch a boat motif I've used last year already, only this time I stitched it in colours that would match the paper. This way, the soft yellow of the sun above the sailboat looks rather like a full moon.
For the rest of the card, I decided to use a little richer decorations than usual: in the upper corner, I put yellow flowers, a bow and a charm in form of a shell.
In the lower corner I put blue flowers, ribbon and punched white branches that look like corals.
Additionally, I used a couple of star-shaped pearls and shimmering gemstones.
