Sail Away

 Definitely not pleasant sailing weather today as it is very grey and raining steadily here but I do have another card to share which is probably more orientated towards the masculine. I started with a partial sheet of DSP with some text on it and cut a large piece for the background before deciding to use the remainder for the rest of the elements.  The background was stencilled randomly for a bit of extra interest and then I stamped the panel with the numbers, trimmed to size and inked the edges.  The sailing boat was stamped  and embossed onto another scrap and die cut using an  oval die, again inking the edges.  Finally stamped the sentiment on a really small scrap.  Two wavy strips were die cut from a scrap of black card to add a bit of contrast to the browns and creams.

Designer Paper - from a Prima Scrips pad which I've had for ages
Number Panel - Stamp from Phill Martin (magazine freebie)
Sentiment - Another freebie from a different Phill Martin magazine
Stencil - Creative Expressions from way back
Image - Sail Away stamp from Stampin' Up (long discontinued)
Wavy Borders - Border die set from Daisy Mae


  1. Perfect masculine card the waves behind tour images


  2. Perfect for a male Val, I know someone who would love this.

  3. We’ll all need boats at this rate, with all the rain. Lovely scene Val, like how you used the paper to stamp your elements on xxx
