Two Different Images ......... Four Different Cards

For these four cards I have used two different Delicious Doodles images.  The first image is called "In the harbour" and the second image used is called "Coming home".
I have coloured all four pictures with my Promarkers.  The bottom two I have them coloured over parts with a sparkly Cosmic Shimmer paint.  I decided to make my own backing papers.  I was recently a winner on the Kenny K's Challenge and I won a voucher to spend at Flonzcraft.  They have a wonderful selection of stamps and it was so easy to place the order and await their arrival.  I picked a nautical set of stamps, some accents and an old car so I knew I could use the nautical stamps for these cards so I have used the anchor and the ship's wheel.  I then used my Inkylicious brush and Tim Holt's Broken China and Faded Jeans distress ink pads to change the background to blue tones.

On the first and third card I used the Papermania Chronology globe that was free with the Creativity Magazine and stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder.  On the second card I used the same globe but this time I stamped it with Imagination Sparkle Medium.  The last card was certainly more trying and I'm not too happy with how it turned out.  I used gold embossing powder and some Frantage flakes but no matter what I did I couldn't get them to stick as I wanted.  I know, I know I most probably need some moreplay time to get it right!!!  The cards have been finished off quite simply as I wanted them all to be male cards - although I'd love to receive any of them as I would love to live by the sea.  I used Craftwork Cards sentiments, ribbon and Papermania Glitterations to finish the cards off.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
