PP44 The Open Sea
To create this card:
De-static the Whisper White cardstock using the Embossing Buddy and stamp the clock image from Sense of Time with Versamark ink. Heat emboss with White Embossing Powder. Stamp the globe image from The Open Sea in Not Quite Navy (NQN) Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp the remaining images in the set in NQN as well. Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Soft Suede to antique the entire image – gently wipe off the ink from the embossed images.
Carefully cut the clock image out and tear the edges around the remaining cardstock. Heavily sponge more Soft Suede ink to give it the appearance of burnt paper. Cut a strip from the new Designer Series Paper- Nautical Expedition (love this paper) and distress using Soft Suede ink and scrunching the paper by hand. Use the Spiral Border Punch on the edge and add additional distressing with Soft Suede.
Print the ship image from My Digital Studio (I chose NQN as the color, reduced the size and “mirrored” the image. Print onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the Decorative Label XL Punch and distress with Soft Suede.
The finishing touches include an embossed panel of NQN using the Finial Press EF, Vintage Trinkets with the Modern Label Punch for the sentiment and an Antique Brad with the new Baker’s Twine to finish off the card.
