TST #65 Come Aboard...and one more!

Jen has come up with a rather different sketch for us this week at Try Stampin on Tuesday.  When I first saw this sketch I turned it round and round until I was finally able to get a vision to work with. Not all cards have to be done the way the sketch is presented. I have decided to make it a portrait card rather than a landscape one.
I used the image of the anchor as the dark line down the left side and ran rope along the image of the rope on the DSP. I am not an expert by any means in nautical knots but I am able to tie one knot in particular so I added that one as an accent on the front as well.

A distress tool was used to distress the edges of the manifest.

A small strip of Marina Mist was used to make the bubble strip. In hindsight I would have put the white behind the bubble punch strip to accent the bubbles more. The anchor from The Open Sea was stamped lightly along this piece as well.

Then for a more feminine version I have come up with this card using the same sketch. I chose not to put the extra strip down the one side.

So now it's your turn.  Use the sketch and turn it whichever way you want.  Go ahead give it a try.

I hope you enjoy my versions.


I like to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment.
