Freshly Made Sketches #47

This week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches is a great one!  I decided to combine that sketch with the challenge at SUO Challenges to use DSP.

I had decided to use The Open Sea and make a masculine card.  This took a while to come together but I'm quite happy with the end result.


I stamped down the left hand side of the card base with the ledger image from The Open Sea set.  For the main image, I colored the ship using markers and stamped onto Crumb Cake.  I then masked it and over-stamped the globe image using Crumb Cake ink.  The sentiment comes from an old hostess set called Occasional Quotes.

Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  The Open Sea; Occasional Quotes
Cardstock:  Early Espresso; Crumb Cake; Not Quite Navy; Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink:  Crumb Cake; Early Espresso; Not Quite Navy
Accessories:  Cherry Cobbler; Not Quite Navy; Early Espresso markers; Circle Scissor; Square Lattice EF; 1" square punch (for the flag tails)

Cheers
Karren

I love this card. It's perfectly masculine without being overly masculine. Clear as mud? :) Thank you so much for participating in our designer series paper challenge at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges.
