True North

It's Tuesday which is my day to share a project created for Topflight StampsTruth be told, this was supposed to be a journal page, but morphed into an encouragement card when I realized that I measured my journal incorrectly, which proves the adage "Measure twice, cut once!" Alas.

Anyways, it's downright warm in these parts which means it's time to get to the shore and/or on the water,  so I opted to use an image and sentiment stamp from  PaperArtsy's  Lynne Perrella 001 Rubber Cling Stamp Set with a compass and scenery stamp from the Scrapcosy 11 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp Set.

Here's the card.

  8. Place a clear ruler  horizontally across the image panel to differentiate the sea from the sky.

  16. Cover the image, then brush or sponge Desert Storm and Peanut Brittle Memento ink on the base of the image panel to create the sandy shore.
  17. Lift the masks and use Copic markers to color the ship headed woman, the sailboats, the grassy hill on the right, and the sand.
