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
