Hope you are all well. Woo hoo, it's Friday. Let's hope we get a bit of decent weather over the weekend. Not got anything planned at all for this weekend. I just need a nice restful weekend with no running around.
Here is my card share for today and it's one for the boys.
I bought this stamp set a few days ago from my local craft store and was itching to ink it up. The stamp set is from Kanban and contains several stamps (the main image, corner compass, little birds, anchor and large bird). I used distress ink to stamp the image. I then coloured it using distress inks. I wanted it to appear quite aged and sketchy looking. I used my dies to cut out the image and matted it onto kraft card. Although not clear in the photo I used a blue glitter pen around the edge of the kraft circle, on the flourish and also on the waves in the sea. The background paper was from my scraps box and I stamped the corner compass stamp in each corner. Finished the card off with some buttons, ribbons, bows, gems and sentiments. The little anchor was also a stamp from the set. I stamped it with silver ink and embossed it and then cut it out. All in all I was quite pleased with how this turned out.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Robyns Fetish - Buttons, blue and bow too

Divas By Design - One for the boys
Whimsy Stamps - Make it Pop (central image mounted using foam pads)

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. I really enjoy reading all your comments. Hope you all have a good weekend.
