Michelle here with my first post as a Sin City Stamps Design Team Member!
I crumpled the stamped paper into a ball, and squeezed it nice and tight. Then I undid it and with a sponge and some Regal Burgundy ink, I lightly accented some of the crumpled ridges as well as the edges of the paper. This I smoothed out and adhered to the front of my card.
I hand tore a square of some scrapbook paper and placed a gears stencil on top. With the sponge and Art Print Brown ink, I dabbed the open design on the stencil.
I stamped the anchor with India Ink and colored it in with a few Spectrum Noir pens. Next, I cut it out carefully with precision scissors.
I placed a bit of twine on a paper napkin and began to ink it gently with both Art print Brown and India Ink.
I also stamped the ship onto some leftover background paper and mounted it with foam tape. I wrapped the twine around the card 3 times securing with tape at the back and attaching to the stamped background paper with more foam tape. Next, I cast the anchor into place and secured with another piece of foam tape.
Anchors away! I hope you have enjoyed my first creation with this amazing rubber stamp company. I'm excited to be here and look forward to seeing you again soon!
