Ship Card Challenge
Well, I did it!!! Not sure I am extremely happy with the results, but I got two cards made with the The Open Sea stamp set from Stampin' UP!.
After stamping the image, I could see that it was not exactly like the other stamp from the other company. Close....very close....but after I really looked at the other stamp, it was all one stay. The map and ship on the top layer.
So, I had to play with the SU stamp to come up with something similar. I also really checked it out and there are some slight differences to the ship, too, but you can't really tell at first glance.
Here is the original one that I was trying to recreate, here.
Of course, I had no DSP that even slightly resembled the other photo from the other day. So, I had to recreate something that sort of looked similar. So, I stamped the map image in Soft Suede onto a piece of Naturals White card stock. Then, I sponged Marina Mist, So Saffron and lightly sponged Soft Suede. I stamped the world map onto a piece of Sahara sand....and then stamped the ship on top using Early Expresso ink.
The first card that I made, I used Marina Mist card stock and didn't care for the outcome so am not sharing it.
Then, I decided to try and recreate the 'blue' in the original card. So, I stamped as before but this time onto a piece of Soft Sky card stock and then sponged with Sahara Sand, Early Expresso and So Saffron.
I added a little anchor that I stamped and cut out. I also cut the ship out and mounted it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I am still not completely happy with my results....so will probably play with it a little more.
Have a great day and remember to Paws N Stamp!!!
