The Male Room Vintage Challenge

Hello and welcome to a new challenge in The Male Room. This week the theme is "Vintage" and as always has to be for a male!  I wasn't really sure exactly what I was going to do, the only thing that was a definite was to use The Open Sea stamp set, and this is what I ended up with.
 
 I stamped the ship with Soft Suede onto a circle of Very Vanilla ,sponged some Soft Sky around it and added a frame cut out of a snippet of  Crumb Cake card. The idea was that it should look like a porthole. Then I repeat stamped the background writing stamp onto Very Vanilla, stamped the map three times across the middle using Soft Sky and sponged Soft Suede around the edges. I stamped the anchor onto a scrap of crumb cake card,  fussy cut it out and punched a hole at the top to thread the linen thread through. The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake. As I have used some snippets I'm going to pay a visit to the Playground as I haven't been there for a while and it's time to see what mischief everyone is getting up to. If you have no idea what I'm talking about - why don't you go and take a look- always something fun going on.

  1. I like it! Not too much not too little. The background could pass for a ship's log and the anchor and twine are the perfect finishing compliments to finish the card. The globe maps on either side keep the focus on the ship. VERY well done.
