Smooth Sailing Wooden Ship

Julie Warner-justwritedesigns-The Write Stuff

Happy Friday! For today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A124), we are to use something ‘wood”, image or actual…whatever! So I’m using a “wooden ship” image. It’s new from Our Daily Bread designs and my new fave image.

The ship scene was stamped on white, water colored w/ markers, trimmed closely and attached to a piece of vanilla c/s that I die cut and resized to fit the image. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of the dp w/ the indigo ink and the compass was stamped w/ the tea dye ink.

The rest is all dp from a big 12×12 pad but the only name I can see on it is ATD but I liked the colors and textured papers and thought they went well w/ my vintage looking image. On the green section, I stamped the compass repeatedly with the bamboo ink then cut it in half so I could have the bands of color across the top and bottom. I hid the seam behind a striped band of dp, layered on the cranberry and a piece of gold (it’s the reverse side of the green).  The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
