The Open Sea

I decided that I wanted to make more of a masculine card this week mainly because I do not have very many of them.  I love the Open Sea stamp set from Stampin Up.

I looked at my stash of paper and came across some blue paper that would go well with the creamy background.

I wanted to have the ship really look like it was out on the sea.  I made some very small cloud templates to make the clouds stand out.

I also added some texture to the front of the card this Carrick Bend Knot that I learned how to make.   The link to the blog for this and many more knots is here.  I wanted to thank you for coming by and for encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone.

The supplies I used:

The Open Sea stamp set from Stampin Up

Stampin Up Dimensionals

Beige card stock for the base  and the blue check designer paper(I have had it forever)

Hemp cording from Natural Polished Hemp that I purchased at Walmart

Designer paper from Colorbok Natural Expressions

Adirondack Dimensional Pearls Denim
