Nautical but nice

I do love a seaside image, so this stamp set – Seaside – is perfect for me. I made this for a colour combination challenge, which I was struggling with until I dug out this set. I had to use Night of Navy, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla... very subtle.

I stamped the image in Basic Gray and coloured using blender pens and the lid of my Night of Navy ink pad. Lots of tearing, some linen thread and I think it has quite a nautical feel.
