The Paper Players - Sketch

The ladies over at The Paper Players have provided a sketch for us to have a go at. As soon as I saw the sketch, I wanted to create something masculine and use a gorgeous stamp set called The Open Sea. I started with using Crumb cake cardstock as my base and then decided to use my First Edition DSP as well. The next panel of Crumb Cake, I have used some of the stamps to create my own DP. Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla all worked very well together.

I wrapped some hemp twine around the card and even tried to create a fisherman's knot on the anchor. I'm happy with the end result.

Thanks for looking xxx
