Wherever You Go

Good morning my crafty friends!  I am down to the last three ship cards that I made.  I thought I would show this one next as I used the other part of my Tim Holtz kraft card here on it.  You know us crafters, nothing wasted, huh? LOL  I wasn't sure when the next time I would need some kraft card with a compass on it was, so why not I thought!  Again, using the plain side on the back, I stamped my globe stamp and cut it out and mounted it on foam in the upper corner.  I stamped the large ship this time, again in black and again highlighted with a white pencil.  I just loved the way it popped off the card each time so, again, why not!  I added a ships wheel in the corner this time and distressed the edges all the way around with walnut stain.  I stamped my sentiment in the upper part of my Spellbinders label and mounted it so only the top half was peeking out from under my focal element.  I used a bit of walnut stain on it while still in the die to create a nice framed edge on it too.  I had a couple of mismatched brass brads that I added to the upper corner.  I stamped the anchor with walnut stain, embossed it with clear and cut it out and punched a hole in the top.  I used some red and white Bakers Twine and wrapped it around the card several times before putting on my black back mat.  I tied the anchor to the twine to finish the card.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and all. Such an interesting looking card with so much to look at, as the other ship cards were. Like the striped paper with this one, I think this is my fav of the ship cards - it just looks very pleasing and balanced to the eye.

Good morning Sue.

You never cease to amaze me with your cards Sue. Your inspiration and enthusisam has pushed me to the max with my card making and scrap booking. I can never thank you enough. xx

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
never think to colour my embellishments. I will have to start as it brings the card together. Top tip.Yes like these stamps the more i see of them.
I had a good play yesterday and stamped into warm (with a heat gun) foam with my stamp. Then painted it . It came out quite well. Think it would look really good for the ship. More to play with. Its never ending the ideas and possibilities.
Your card has really inspired me. Well another 2 ship cards to come , then your sunk LOL .

Another incredible ship card Sue. Im really loving these style of cards. Lee xx

Lindyloo said...

Hi Sue,
Another great nautical card. I like the reddish tones of the striped paper in the background, it makes a lovely change from the usual blues we all seem to use.
I am so excited to see your shows tomorrow evening, but am really sad that I will miss the bulk of wednesday shows as that is the day I am at Leicester University with my son. I have set record for the shows I'll miss but hopefully I'll be back in time to see the last two shows.
I hope all goes well and that it is a raging success (which I'm certain it will be).
Hugs Linda
