Okay. Not to toot my own horn, but seriously, how CUTE is this Adventure Bound card?!? I just love how it came out.
I had so much fun creating the look of an old worn and weathered wooden boat with paper punch art, complete with a vintage-looking porthole. Wouldn't this make a great graduation card, retirement card, or even to say “Bon Voyage”?
I started with the Hardwood background stamp (of course), stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake card stock. I stamped the ship from The Open Sea and then colored in the image using my Blendabilities (Note: We now have Stampin' Blends). The Rose compass is from the same set and was stamped with Lost Lagoon ink, and the greeting came from Project Life Remember This. I colored in the “bound” of the greeting with the middle color from the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities markers.
The porthole was created using various sizes of circles from the Circles Collection Framelits. Of course, all the “metal” was aged by sponging with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso ink. I topped it off by adding a few “bolts” of Neutrals Candy Dots.
How did I do?
