Hi everyone! I thought to take a break from DT cards today and try my hand at a clean and simple card. I'd intended to rough up and distress the edges around the image with black ink but must have lost the thought somewhere in the excitement of the creative process, LOL!!! I'm entering this card in the "Times Gone By" Fashionable Stamping Challenge. The image reminds me of Christopher Columbus who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean and discovered the American Continents.
My card base is Riding Hood Red layered with True Black cardstock. To create the image I stamped the Sanded Background in Going Grey on Whisper White then the ship over it in Riding Hood Red. The strip at the bottom is Going Grey finished on one side using the Deckled Edge Scissors. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and finished it off with three small black brads. To further embellish the card I punched two pieces of Going Grey using the Word Window Punch and attached them with a small black brad.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
