Portobello Road Vintage Sailing

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with another of my cards from my challenge to myself-use the stash you already own in different ways. For this project I stamped my ship with brown Memento and coloured with Promarkers. I then distressed the image cut with a nestie with Tea Dye Distress inks and then distressed my Papermania Portobello Road papers with this ink too. I placed these on a Kraft card mat then placed them on a white card blank. I then embellished with Portobello Road ribbon, bow and buttons.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Dude Time Doodles: Buttons
I love Promarkers: Transport
Penny's Paper Challenges: Masculine
Waste Not Wednesday: Anything Goes
LEJ Designs Challenges: Vintage
Simon Says Stamp and Show: No Rules

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments, I really appreciate them :-)
