I've really enjoyed this Open Sea set. I was so disappointed that it didn't make it into the new Idea Book and Catalog. It's such a great set for the men in our lives!
I actually did part of this card at Scrap & Share a couple of weeks ago. It's been sitting on my desk waiting to be shared.
The ship's log stamp was inked with Crumb Cake and stamped off then stamped on Very Vanilla. Then I stamped the ship on top with Chocolate Chip. The log was subtle enough that I didn't need to mask.
There is a compass attached to the inside. It was stamped with Chocolate Chip and stamped off, then punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch and matted it with a 1 3/8" Chocolate Chip Circle. I punched a hole with the 1/16" hole punch and threaded it with a piece of linen thread.
I'll submit this to the SCS Ways to Use it Challenge to do a card without white cardstock. She didn't say no vanilla or white so I think this is ok.
And the Technique Lover's Challenge on Monday, again at SCS, was to do a card with an Old World Look. This is probably too clean to be considered "Old World" by anyone else's standards, but it looks old to me. Maybe that's because it's been sitting on my desk so long! LOL!
