Finally found some time yesterday to sit and mess about with stamps and paper! By the look of the weather today I will be able to do the same again today - so much for spring!
Was having a mooch about over at Raspberry Road and saw this quote -
first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.
The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. ~Henry
He wasn't wrong was he???? LOL
I have a couple of mens birthdays coming up so got on with quick makes whilst looking at the wind and rain. As I'm typing my world is now white (with snow!)
I saw a card made like this ago on Pinterest - sadly I didn't bookmark it so have had to do it from memory and now it's finished I don't think it comes anywhere close to the other lovely creation!
The ship stamp is from a set by Artemio. Stamped using Versafine Black onto white linen textured card and slightly coloured with water colour pastels. I masked the image off and sponged on the sun and sky with DI.
The striped background paper was a piece from the 'left over' drawer and I cut out a circle using a nestie and popped the stamped image behind then stuck it all onto white linen cardstock.
The 'porthole' was done using two nesties then adding some silver brads and secured with 3d pads to raise it from the card.
The anchor is a Kanban stamp. I ran some string across a DI pad threaded it through the top of the anchor, underneath one of the brads to secure and attached it to the greeting tag. Instead of throwing the leftover bits of string away I stuck them to the tag!
