Smell the sea & feel the sky.

Hi everyone! A very Happy New Year to you! Can’t believe 2023 is here already! Let’s make it a good one! Our first challenge of the year is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my project for LTSCB #159 – Anything Goes! I created a nautical-themed mixed media card using Stamplistic’s Galleon rubber stamp and some paper piecing. Love how it turned out!


I started by cutting a panel of Canson Cold Press Watercolor paper, taping the edges to my epicurean board, and inking the sky and sea with water and Ranger faded jeans distress ink. Once dry, I stamped the Galleon image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then again on a Stampin’ Up Whisper White cardstock scrap and a brown patterned paper scrap. I fussy cut the sails and flags from the white cardstock and and ran a Memento Tuxedo Black marker around the outside edges of each. Similarly, I fussy cut the ship body from the brown patterned paper and ran a Memento Rich Cocoa marker around the outside edges.


I paper pieced the ship body and all the sails and flags, adding a bit of color with yellow and blue alcohol markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired By Stamping Seaside Sentiments stamp set and layered the panel on Stampin’ Up Night of Navy, which completed the card front.


I cut the inside panel from Stampin’ Up Whisper White and embellished it with strips cut from Stampin’ Up Night of Navy. I stamped another sentiment from the Inspired By Stamping Seaside Sentiments stamp set and layered the panel on Night of Navy cardstock.
