"Buried Treasure" is a regular Friday feature here at The Stampin' Schach. What are "Buried Treasures"? They are cards from my archives which are deserving of a revisit. Whether it's a layout, a technique, or maybe just an underused stamp set, these cards are like a pirate's booty of ideas worth a second look. Today's card first appeared on The Stampin' Schach on September 7, 2009. I am proud to say that it was a winner for Mojo 103! CLICK HERE to see the original post with all of the delicious details!
Layout: As with any Mojo card, it is all about the layout...and this layout is perfect for showcasing Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper and Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. Go floral with Paisley Petals or add a nautical touch with Nautical Expeditions paired with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
Technique: Watercoloring with Blender Pens and inks worked well with this image from the now retired set, Gifts of the Earth! Update the look with an image from Studio Sketches or go masculine with the Schooner from The Open Sea. There are many suitable choices!
More Updates: Seam Binding? Baker's Twine? Scallop Trim Border Punch with Pearls? A fabulous bow? As always, when I see these older cards, my mind races with all of the changes I would make!
