It's Day 3 of the Traveler stamp set Inspiration Series -
I hope you're enjoying this set of more 'masculine' cards.
The images in this stamp set call out to my inner vintage maven, but honestly, my first thought is to go shabby-chic, romantic style with them.
Creating a set of more masculine projects was a fantastic challenge!
Here's today's ocean liner card:
As with the first two cards, this one is pretty straightforward stamping - except.....
1) I created the inked layers on the bottom of the card base using a piece of torn grid paper and a sponge. Cover the top portion of the card front with the torn paper, exposing about a 1/4" or so across the bottom of the card. (shows darker in the photo) Sponge Crumb Cake ink all over the exposed portion. Next, shift the torn paper up and over, exposing more of the card front and shifting the torn edge so it creates a different sponged edge. Sponge more ink on the exposed card front. This will create the two-tone effect you see shown.
2) As much as I hate fussy-cutting anything, this stunning ship image was dying to be made 3-D. So, I stamped the full image on the focal card stock piece, then stamped it again on a scrap. I cut out just the larger portions of the ship with my Paper Snips then popped it up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
3) The Blackberry Bliss circle was actually run through the Big Shot in the Modern Mosaic folder, but my camera was being a booger the day I took the pics and I couldn't get it to show up in the shot. It looks awesome in person tho'! LOL!
