All at Sea, or Captain Flint

This was made for a family member who used to be a keen sailor, but it also reminds me of a childhood spent reading Swallows and Amazons, and the Amazons Uncle "Captain Flint"

The rope wreath was lightly embossed into the card and then gently coloured with brushes over the replaced stencil. The main image is coloured with pencils.
