There are quite a number of challenges with a masculine theme out in blogland. It's a while off till Father's Day, June is just on the doorstep - my Dad's birthday month. So I thought I would get out my, as yet untouched, Stampin Up "The Open Sea" set and create a card for him. To create the card I masked and inked the oval and stamped over with the ships log and ship stamps - all with my favourite Tim Holtz distress inks. I then put some white gel pen on the sails and a bit of Copic for colour. Then distressed the edges mounted on some really old, el cheapo patterned paper from my scrap drawers which I inked on the edges. Then tied so twine in a reef knot with a charm and stuck it all together. I love blue and brown, its one of my favourite colour combos.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges.
