Welcome to my blog today. I hope you enjoy what you see.
The card I have for y'all today uses a set of stamps from The Stamp Man called Aspects of Design 2-Nautical. This is the first set of stamps I have used by this designer and they leave a really crisp impression.
I don't do alot of manly cards, so sometimes I have a hard time deciding what to do, but not this time. I knew I had the perfect stamp set for a manly card.
I began with a vanilla card stock base from Colorbok. The base measures 6" x 6". I added a DP panel from Colorbok and a strip of DP from DCWV My Guy pack. I stamped the images on GP White card stock with Memento Espresso Truffle and inked them heavily with DI Vintage Photo. I matted them onto Chocolate Chip card stock from SU. I die cut an Olive Green (SU) circle and cut off the bottom portion of it and adhered it over top of the other elements. I cut out the ship after coloring it with ShinHan Art marker CG 0.5 Cool Grey, Copic YR27 Tuscan Orange and Chromatix Apricot 3. The sentiment is from Fiskars Make a Wish set and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black. I added three green buttons from my stash to the patterned strip to finish off the card.
Thanks for looking at my creation. God Bless y'all.
