Just Add "O" for Ocean and several O's for a 90th

My Father in Law is celebrating his 90th birthday this July and wanted a few cards to use as invitations for the get together.
He came to Australia from England in the Merchant Navy  in the 1950's and still has a love of the Ocean so this challenge from Just Add Ink was perfect.
I felt the High Tide was an appropriate stampset to use. I've also snuck in the compass image from Wherever You Go - I will miss this when it retires, I have loved the sunray image in this set too, but it just wasn't right for this card.

The Celebrate looks embossed in the photos but it is actually debossed using the Retiring Celebrations Duo TIEF. To highlight the word I lightly sponged with Soft Sky to give the effect of clouds. I will miss both Soft Sky and Dapper Denim so it was good to use them for this set.

I hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz

  3. Such a great card Liz, oceans never occurred to me as an "O" element. Lovely job with Stamping and design. Thanks for sharing at Just Add Ink.
