Inkspirational Challenge #24 - Photo

Hi there and welcome! My DT post for the current challenge at Inkspirational is quite late. My internet now seems to have a mind of its own so lets try this morning.

What a beautiful winters day it is today. Halfway through the first month of winter and you would think it is spring here at the moment. We had a crazy flash storm last night (but that always happens in the tropics) and this morning, the birds are in full song the sun is shining and there is only a slight breeze. Perfect!

This week we have a photo challenge for you -

The photo actually reminds me of our storm last night. I'm not too far from the water where I live (well, I guess that isn't too hard living on an island lol). But, I can see the water from my house.

Here is my DT card -

I had to use one of my favourites - The Open Sea (SU). I just layered a few of the stamps to make my own panel and then used hemp twine for texture.

Thanks so much for looking xx


Now onto our facts of the day


The Australian federation consists of six States and two Territories. Most inland borders follow lines of longitude and latitude. The largest State, Western Australia, is about the same size as Western Europe

The name Australia is derived from the Latin Australis, meaning "southern". The country has been referred to colloquially as Oz since the early 20th century

Australia has six states—New South Wales (NSW), Queensland (QLD), South Australia (SA), Tasmania (TAS), Victoria (VIC) and Western Australia (WA) — and two major mainland territories —the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and the Northern Territory (NT).

The capital of Australia is Canberra in the ACT



  1. Hi Kylie. LOVE this masculine card. The layering of the stamped images is so perfect for the theme ... and I love that they are muted tones, but different colors. The hemp twine is the perfect finished detail. Loll xx

  2. You've done a great job with this card - I really like the effect of all the different stamps you've used to make the panel, and the hemp twine is a great touch! I also like how you mounted the panel of DP on foam and the cut corners. Great clean nautical style card!

  3. Great card - love that twine!

  4. I do love how you have layered the stamps and the colour scheme is perfect. Enjoying all these facts!

  5. Great traditional nautical card, but with a contemporary twist. Love the circle backing paper and the twine. Marina
