I've been anxiously awaiting my LBB (Little Brown Box), hoping that it arrived before the weekend - It did!
When I saw Narelles sketch for FMS201 and saw the the rectangle background with the circle on top..... perfect for a porthole window to accent the nautical theme of "The Open Sea", and StampInkPaper's Tic-Tac-Toe SIP Challenge 11 was also a winner for a Masculine card, I have gone Birthday/Masculine/Blue
Moonlight DSP had a beautiful design for the feel of the ocean, I have stamped the ledger background in Pool Party and the ship in Soft Sky. The porthole window has been cut using Framelits, then I punched 8 little holes using a 1/8" circle punch and then popped little brads in the holes - some of the brads still wanted to move so I used Dimensionals to hold them in place and mount over the top of the stamped Ship image (I cut this the same size as the outside of the porthole).
I can see that The Open Sea will be one of my favourite Masculine stamp sets, it has a lovely historic nautical theme with a variety of stamps to be able to change things up.
Thanks for visiting today,
