A WATERCOLOR  Challenge is this week's theme at THE PAPER PLUNGE. Looks like I took it literally when making this card using the stamp set THE OPEN SEA.  Watercoloring can be very detailed or in this case simple and effective.  Our theme for October's Monthly Card Class is Sympathy Cards or Thinking of You Cards.  This masculine card can be used for either. By leaving off a sentiment, you can customize your card to fit any occasion. 

Do you enjoy watercoloring? Join us with your card or project at The Paper Plunge Challenge #3. 

On this version I tore the bottom corner of the ship's manifest to change it up a bit. The compass arrow ( What's Up Punch) is also able to spin.

Stamp Set:  The Open Sea, World Map
Ink:  Stazon Black, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Reinkers- Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand
Card Stock:  Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Soft Sky, DSP- Typeset
And More:  Mini Silver Brads, Aqua Painter, What's Up Punch, Sponges
