Dreaming of the Boundless Sea
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! I had a chance to play around with the January 2017 Artistic Outpost Release stamps, dies and paper again this week and decided to create a vintage style card using the Mojo Monday #483 Sketch Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit us at the AO Blog yet or the Mojo Monday Challenge site, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration is posted throughout the week from all of my AO Design Team sisters as well fabulous inspiration weekly from the Mojo Monday DT and their gallery!
To create this card:
1). Ink the young man image from AO The Captain with archival black ink onto a piece of vanilla cardstock and add distress inks (I used vintage photo, walnut stain and tea dye) to age the paper. Trim the image, add a bit more distressing with the large splatter stamp from AO Grunge Elements and mount the image onto black cardstock, trimming close to the edge.
2). Cut two pieces of the AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad (per the sketch) and mount onto black cardstock, trimming close to the edge.
3). On another piece of vanilla cardstock, ink the AO Ephemera Backgrounds ledger stamp with archival black ink, stamp on an angle, mask off the edge and continue to layer this stamp to fill the entire panel. Add the anchor and compass image from AO The Captain stamp set along with the large splatter stamp from AO Grunge Elements using vintage photo distress ink, distress the edges of the panel and mount onto black cardstock.
4). Ink the sentiment from AO The Captain with archival black ink, stamp onto vanilla cardstock, antique with distress inks and mount onto black cardstock.
5). Die cut and emboss several of the gears from the AO Steampunk Gears Dies from espresso cardstock, apply a bit of antique brass distress stain and cut a few in half.
6). Add the AO Vagabond Treasures panels to the card front along with the sentiment, add the black satin ribbon with the ribbon slide (wrapping the ends behind the panel) and mount the entire card front onto the white card base.
7). Insert an antique brad into one of the gear dies, add the AO The Captain stamped youth image to the card front with dimensional foam along with the AO Steampunk Gears Dies to finish off the card.
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and I hope all of you have a fabulous weekend!
