Nautical Birthday

 


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Lindsey has chosen a nautical theme.


If nautical isn't you then anything goes birthday is fine too!
The design team and our party guest Melanie have loads of inspiration for you, so I hope you can play along.

I thought this retired map stamp from Stampin Up would fit the theme as you need maps to navigate at sea!
It's stamped in versafine clair nocturne ink, clear embossed , the sprayed with antique linen and old paper distress stains. The edges are distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and inked with frayed burlap distress ink.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

The Male Room, Dads and Grandads



Supplies:
Stampin Up world map: versafine clair nocturne ink & clear ep; distress spray stains & ink; Mama Elephant scripty birthday die; happy sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

That is a great stamp with that wonderful map and love the vintage look using the distress stains and finished beautifully with the black shiny die cut sentiment. A brilliant card Cathy. x

What a fabulous job making this map stamp look antique! Great idea for the topping, and a beautiful card!

At first glance I thought that this was patterned paper so it's even more impressive it's a stamp you've aged... Great masculine card x

Makes an excellent masculine card! Amazing stamping and sponging - I also thought it was designer paper!!

Ah! I didn't think it was a stamp - I was so sure it was pattern paper! Definitely one of the stamps that qualifies for an all time favorite - I love how it looks vintage like and how you've used it so so well in your card, Cathy! Awesome!!

JoAnn said...

Great use of that map stamp and you do need a map to navigate the sea. Love how it turned out.
