Travel Ways

Hi and welcome!  Today I made a card using a new-to-me stamp set and a new In Color.  I used the sketch from Seize the Sketch and the inspiration from Card Concept to come up with a clean and layering card.  I also used the theme from Friday Mashup to stamp on something other than cardstock and make a card for Father's Day.  For my card, I used the Faux Silk technique and stamped onto tissue paper.



The stamp set I used is called Travel Ways by Stampers Anonymous and has a lot of cool collage-y images.  I stamped a number of images onto onto the card base and also onto white tissue paper.  I then scrunched up the tissue paper before adhering it to a Very Vanilla panel.  The ship was stamped in Midnight Muse ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  I used the new In Color that immediately appealed to me - Lost Lagoon - love that color!

I googled a Sailor's Knot and tied it using Hemp Twine.



Thanks for looking.





Products used:

Stamps:  Travel Ways (Stampers Anonymous)
Ink:  Midnight Muse, Gray Flannel (Memento)
Cardstock:  Midnight Muse, Lost Lagoon, Very Vanilla, tissue paper
Accessories:  Clear EP, Hemp Twine, Lil Inkers Tag Die

Cheers
Karren

Karren, this is a great card. So many little details that make it perfect. I've never tried the Faux Silk technique before, but I like it. Also the sailor's knot is the perfect thing to finish it off. Great job. Thanks for playing with the Friday Mashup.
