I stamped the background using the text stamps and smaller nautical stamps on cream card that I distressed with distress inks. The next background layer was stamped using the map and coloured with pearlised watercolour paint. The edges were torn and then singed. I had a bowl of water handy at this point and I had to use it.
The boat was stamped in coffee archival and then die cut with a Spellbinders label die. I coloured the image with the pearlised watercolour paints. A piece of cream fabric was stitched to the base and frayed to the edge of the base layer then other layers were stitched onto this.
I used the word stamps to stamp in coffee archival on cotton tape and used this to embellish the card. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
"Crafty Cardmakers - Distress it"
"Karens Doodles - Stitch it up"
"Lexis Creations - For the man/boy in your life"
"Make it Monday - Anything goes"
"Simon Says Stamp and Show - one for the boys"
"Stampin sisters in christ - Do something on your card that you're afraid of" In this case it was the fire...like I said I had to use the bowl of water more than once!
"2 Sisters - bring on the boys"
"Little Claire - Male theme"
"One stop craft - One for the boys"
