The Open Sea

I REALLY like "The Open Sea" set.  There's not very many masculine sets and this one seems to be fun and easy enough to work with.  There's not a lot of coloring to do on it so you can whip out a card in no time.   

This card did take a little time but not a lot.  

The colors of card stock used here is Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Pacific Point and Early Espresso.  

I stamped the Pacific Point piece with Pacific Point ink and the anchor image.

The front layer was stamped on Very Vanilla and the ship's log image was stamped on it using Crumb Cake ink.  Then I stamped the image using Versa Mark and I embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged Crumb Cake over the ship and outside it about a 1/2".  I sponged the edges and that panel was done.

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny" wishes set.  Once all the pieces were cut and stamped it went together pretty fast.  

And the best part of making this card is I'M AHEAD ON MY CARDS!!!!  LOL  I am not usually ahead in my card making but this card puts me ahead of the game.  Now don't be too impressed or even jealous, I didn't say a word about getting it mailed out in time!!! LOL  Let's hope that goes well this year too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
