It's funny how you can start out with the same stamp set, card stock and colors and come up with three entirely different cards. Unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of the other two as they were here all day and I had to get rid of them before hubby arrived looking for supper lol.
I started out running it through the Stripes embossing folder with some background stamping but when I did it I didn't like it at all. So back to the drawing board. I took the same card and ran it through the Square Lattice (which got rid of the stripes, which surprised the heck out of me) So then I stamped with Early Espresso but still wasn't happy. It was a mess, anyway by the time I "Fixed" it I actually loved it more than anything we did all day. Go figure. Have a look -
I used Crumb Cake for the base and Early Espresso ink, I then cut a strip of Pacific point and stamped with Pacific Point ink with the anchor. I embossed the anchor with the new Pewter embossing powder. And of course had to use the baker's twine lol.
Yes I did - I cut out the sails and popped them up on dimensionals. How's that for
dedication idiocy is more like it. I'm a nut case. I don't mind cutting things out but those sails were really tiny hahaha. More patience than brains right?
So that's my share for today High Seas hugs!
