It's Thursday and time to play at Pals Paper Arts! This week we are featuring a fabulous sketch by our own talented Margaret Moody. I took to The Open Sea and went nautical for PPA90. I hope you enjoy today's creation!
The Stampin' Schach Stampin' Tips:
- Collage! I focused on the circular element of the sketch and inked the "Map" image from The Open Sea with Not Quite Navy. I added the fabulous "Galleon", inked with Soft Suede, and a partial "Compass" inked with Basic Gray. The edges of the images were very lightly distressed with Crumb Cake ink.
- Delicious details! Three Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets complements the nautical theme, while a Vintage Trinket Button Brad accents the Compass image.
- Tempting Tiny Tags! Who can resist the Tiny Tags suspended from Baker's Twine with a Vintage Trinket safety pin! Inked in Cherry Cobbler and punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch, the edges of the tags were lightly distressed with Crumb Cake ink.
Don't you just love the new Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper? I can't wait to make another card with it. And isn't The Open Sea stamp set perfect for classic masculine cards? I will be anxious to read what you think! So please, won't you leave me a comment? It's worth a bite of blog candy! And as always, if you have questions about today's card and the techniques I used, I am only an email away! Until next time...
