The sub- title of this post should read - with two fails and one save!!
Once again I have been
playing working with the STAMPlorations True North set of stamps.
I started by cutting a rectangle using a Memory Box Stitched Rectangle from watercolour paper, then stamped and clear embossed the ship image.
I then used distress inks to paint the image and background - in doing so I left a couple of small smudges of brown on the background of the card ...
so out came the silver shimmer spray, which looks gray when seen straight on, and that disguised the small dots, and gave an interesting shimmer.... but
I had stamped the sentiment on this panel before I sprayed it, and being in distress ink, it reacted to the moisture and slightly smudged... argh!!
The birthday greeting was stamped on a snippet and cut with a small stitched rectangle, some fairly coarse twine was knotted around it, and both panels were mounted over an orange base - the recipients favourite colour. He is also a person who hates clutter, so a plain card is what he appreciates!!
