The Open Sea...again!

The Open Sea is perfect for a masculine Vintage look. I love the collage technique! Here are a few tips creating a collage:
  • Start with your largest image. For this card, I used Basic Gray Classic Ink on the Captain's Log and stamped off once before stamping on the card stock.
  • Proceed with the next largest stamp working your way down to the smallest stamp to fill in the white spaces.
  • Overlap some of your images to create some dimension - don't be afraid to stamp off of the edges
Supplies used: The Open Sea & Travel Log (greeting) stamp sets; Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler; Naturals White Card Stock; Basic Gray, Chery Cobbler Not Quite Navy & Basic Gray Classic Ink; Wide Oval Punch; Cherry Cobbler/White Bakers Twine; Metallic Brads; Stampin' Dimensionals

24 hours from now...

... We will be aboard the cruise ship heading to Alaska! Woo-Hoo!! I will try and post some photos once in awhile but it will depend on network connections, etc. In the meantime, check back for some more projects that, hopefully, will post while I am gone!


Supplies: Fabulous Florets stamp set; Beyond the Garden DSP; Rose Red & Whisper White card stock; Tangerine Tango & Melon Mambo Stampin' Emboss Powder; Wild Wasabi Classic Ink & Versarmark Ink; Top Note die & the Big Shot; Basic Rhinestone Jewels; 5/8" Whisper White Satin Ribbon; Stampin' Dimensionals

It may be a bit difficult to see the that the 2 larger flowers are embossed (one in Melon Mambo and one in Tangerine Tango), cut out and adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
