Another sneak peak! This card, which follows MaryJo's sketch #171, uses a brand-new, about-to-be-released set called The Open Sea.....perfect for all those manly cards we need to make! I haven't purchased a set that is a good masculine set in a very long time and when I saw this, I knew it was a must have....AND you can purchase it from the new Summer Mini, which goes live this Sunday, May 1.
This week, I turned the sketch on its side. You can see the original sketch when you click on MaryJo's sample below in the Blog Hop thumbnails. The ship was simply stamped in Night of Navy and then I used my blender pen to bring the blue into the sails....it's a technique I've loved for years and is just so easy to do! As you can see the base of the card was dry embossed with my favorite folder, the Square Lattice EF and the Big shot. There's also a bit more on this card that will soon be available....the Baker's Twine. It's actually available in solid white, Cherry Cobbler and White (which is shown here), and Early Espresso and White....and at only $2.95 for 25 yards, it's a real bargain! Actually, the Cherry Cobbler blends well with the Riding Hood Red on this card. The button is now retired, but matches Riding Hood Red as well!
