Or perhaps I should should AHOY!?
Maybe not! Save that for another time
Claire Jackson is here today and she
has brought a really nice card for us
using a very clever background technique
"Man cannot discover new oceans unless
he has the courage to lose sight of the shore ―
Using a stamp positioner, stamp the
gradation stamp in faded jeans
Distress Oxide ink on smooth stamping
card approximately 6 1/2” square.
Re-ink the lower part of the stamp in
vintage photo and stamp again.
Re-ink parts of the top of the stamp in broken china...
... and stamp once more.
Use masking tape to position the seaside
template and stencil ‘explore’ in broken china.
Next stencil the ship’s wheel in walnut stain.
Add the quotation, highlights and shading
with a black fine line pen, a grey alcohol marker
and a white gel pen.
Ink the seaside memories stamp in faded jeans.
Without using a block press the stamp onto
an 8 x 8” card blank so that the outside edges
are covered. It doesn’t matter if the
impressions overlap a little.
On a separate piece of card stencil the shells
in vintage photo and broken china.
Cut out the shells and place them on a
piece of foam.
With an embossing tool press gently
on the back of the card to shape them.
Assemble all the pieces and mount them,
adding a few sequins for a bit of sparkle."

Super card Claire. Thank you
Love how you made the background
Have you all seen the Kaisercraft Stencils?
I think they are fabulous value for money
in one 12x12 stencil, you get four individual
6x6 stencils. Now that can't be bad...........
