How has your week been so far? We aren't even half way yet. I can't believe how close we are to Easter it only a couple of weeks away.
My friend asked me to make this card for her husband after she saw the Save the Date cards I made recently. Her husband is making a sailing ship that comes in weekly parts.
I started with the background I have a set of nautical stamps and I used these to stamp and heat emboss in silver and clear. Then I used three shades of Distress ink to ink over the embossing.
The background for the ship was cut from a real map and then inked round the edge. I cut the ship three times in brown, white, red and blue using a Signature die from Joanna Sheen. I kept the brown as my base then I cut the relevant bits from the other colours to stick over the top. I also hand cut some black card to go behind the ship to highlight the details.
I cut the ship's wheel to fill in a space.
I have used this Happy Birthday stamp quite a bit lately it fits so well with the dies.
I do like how this turned out. Making it kept me busy while I waited for the man to come and fix our cooker. It is all sorted now.
I hope the rest of the week is kind to you and that you are able to fit in some crafting.
