So now.... on to my card. I decided to make a Tri-shutter card (instructions HERE) because it allowed me the space to use several of the great stamps in two of the six sets being released... Surging Sea and Smooth Sailing!
I was going for that "old wooden ship with it's polished brass" look... I hope I achieved it! I used K&Co Blue Awning design paper for the entire card, stamping the compass images directly on it, and all the rest of the stamped sentiments and the ship are stamped on the MME Bella Bella paper. I added embossed panels that I sponged with distress ink and cut with a variety of dies, and added brass brads, tabs and the brass colored mirrored paper.
Here are the supplies used:
Papers: Bazzill cardstock, K&Co Blue Awning and My Mind's Eye Bella Bella designer paper, Mirrored paper
Ink: Versafine Sepia, THoltz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain, Stormy Sky
Accessories: Spellbinders Double Ended Tags, Ribbon Tags Trio, Grommet Tags, Classic Circles Large & Small, Labels 22, 17 and 18. Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder. Brass Brads, Tabs, Charms, Grossgrain Ribbon and Twine
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs Smooth Sailing and Surging Sea:
