Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 24 February 2017

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "LOVE IS ALL AROUND".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "anything goes".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 This week I have made a birthday card for a very special friend who, like me, loves Ching-Chou Kuik images.  For Christmas my friend bought me some nautical dies so I knew I had to use these to make her card.
 I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik "Bon Voyage my Love" and made sure I printed it off small enough to go in my porthole Marianne Designs die.  I coloured my image in with Promarkers and used Pan Pastels for the background.
 For the backing papers, printed toppers and embellishments I used my new Debbi Moore Shabby Chic Nautical CD.  When I saw this I knew I had to have it.
 I have used lots of different dies, wavy tearing ruler, fishing net and pearls to finish off the card.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
