You Can Never Cross The Ocean
I wanted to take a moment to share the step by step instructions on how to create the Mixed Media card that I designed for the January 2017Artistic Outpost Release.
This card was created with the brand new Artistic Outpost (AO) stamp set, The Captain and the new AO Steampunk Gears Dies, AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad along with the previously released AO Grunge Elements stamp set and ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).
1). Ink the ship captain image from the AO The Captain stamp set with archival black ink and stamp onto vanilla cardstock, fussy-cut the image and layer onto black cardstock (fussy-cutting close to the stamped edge again) for additional thickness.
2). Trim the background from the AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad, mount onto vanilla cardstock before adding the knotted hemp twine along the printed banner image (I used hot glue to attach the twine).
3). Die cut and emboss the different gears from the AO Steampunk Gears Dies from vanilla and dark brown cardstock, sponge with distress ink to age the paper and mount onto the card front with antique brass brads. Adhere the entire panel onto the dark brown card base.
4). Ink the sentiment from the AO The Captain stamp set with archival black ink and stamp onto vanilla cardstock. Add the distressing with the compass image from the AO The Captain stamp set and the large splatter stamp from the AO Grunge Elements stamp set using distress inks.
5). Die cut and emboss the sentiment panel using the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and add the gear die cut with a brad before mounting onto the card front with dimensional foam.
6). Mount the fussy-cut captain image with dimensional foam as well to finish off the card.
Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a wonderful week, my friends!
