Wishing Myself Fair Winds and Following Seas. Why Knot?
I loved the idea of doing a more masculine card so jumped at the chance to get a hold of Papertrey Ink's Out To Sea stamp set. This is a CASE of Melissa Philips card she masterfully made a few years ago. I had a lot of fun researching cool nautical knots to use on this card. Here is my "bash" at a reef knot.
As it has been a while I can't recall all the finer points of this card like exact ink colors etc. but I'll take a punt nonetheless:
Stamps: PTI Out To Sea
Paper: Vintage Cream and Ocean Tides
Ink: Brilliance Cloud White, Distress Ink in Antique Linen, Fired Brick, Momento London Fog, and Versacolor ? Tourquoise and ? Chateaux Gray (sorry).
Accessories: Cuttlebug Nautical Stars and Swiss Dots Embossing Folders, Misc. Brad, Inksentials Crackle, Garden twine that has been braided and reef knotted *feeling clever to have learned a "real" knot*.
Thanks for stopping by!
