This one is my favourites...Must be the bling and colour coming to the fore! Just shows that the card can be presented in both horizontal and vertical formats. Penny Black, StampIt Australia and Vamp Stamp stamps were used. Prisma Colouring pencils and H2O's were used to enchance the colour.

The stamps from Coronado are just fabulous and always stamp well. I think adding a charm to the knot at the bottom would further enhance the card along with the merest shading of the sails and the sea! All in all, though, it doesn't look half bad as is! As I was visiting another stamper at the time, I did not want to use up all her resources.

Well, I saw something very similar online for this card. Four of us experienced stampers tried to make it from directions we had found, but found there were mistakes. Starting from scratch and checking out one made as a RAK (only smaller), we finally came up with a formula that we could all live with. And....Here are the results! Firstly the card is presented closed and then secondly, opened, after you pull the cord at one end. The GanGangs (from Coronado Stamps) need no further colouring!
