I recently purchased the STAMPlorations set True North and decided to ink it up the other day as I was needing a masculine birthday card.
I started by stamping and silver embossing both the image and sentiment.
I then added masks before adding colour - the sea and the sea fog I used dusters to apply the colours, which gave a sense of movement, but not violent movement.
The 'beams' were dusted on too, but I used sponges on the sky, which gives a hint at turbulence that may have just calmed.. I added dots of stickles for stars.
After tying the bakers twine around the panel, I added a thin strand of gold thread for interest. I then mounted this panel over a lighter blue base.
I also stamped the inside of the card with the compass from the set,
and added a birthday greeting too.
