Open Sea Masculine Card

As promised I will post a little more detail on my blog hop projects.

I played with this card quite a bit trying to get the color combo and orientation right and it almost went out the window. I used one edge of framed tulips embossing folder on the bottom edge of this card, I thought it represented a watery edge. On the base of the card I stamped the captain's log stamp and if you look closely I stamped it upside down .. oops. You probably would have never noticed though. The red strip is the Nautical Expedition DSP which I wrapped some of that yummy bakers twine around the one edge ... I am going to love that stuff!! Will definitely have to get more! The boat image I originally did in white craft ink only but when I added the brads to fill in some space it make it look washed out and more like a ghost ship with my sponged edges ... which looked cool but didn't have enough punch for this card. It'll get reincarnated with some skulls stamps later . So I redid it using my white embossing powder that somehow has a litle glitter in it now. I really love how this card came out and even looks better in person!! Happy Stamping!
