Ship in a Bottle

This is my first card made for the Creative Studios Design Team. 
IMG 7606 f improf 483x483 Ship in a Bottle

I started with a card blank 7” x 7” and I cut a black matting layer. For the next layer I cut a piece of pearlised paper just slightly bigger than the Netting Mask and I inked the paper with browns and greens. Over the top of this in brown ink I stamped lightly  the Father sentiment and the Ship in the Bottle stamp. I did like the Father sentiment very much and I kept wanting to add it to every project. Once everything was dry I embossed the paper with the Netting Mask to give it a soft texture.
Next I stamped the U-Mount Tree Bark A6 Rubber Stamp on to some textured brown card with brown ink; I then trimmed it and I cut a black matt for it. I stamped the Ship in a Bottle stamp onto white card with brown ink  then I  heat embossed  it with clear embossing powder. I used  Promarkers to add a little colour to the design. The Ship in the Bottle image is so easy to cut out. I stamped the Father Sentiment on to white card in brown ink and then I heat embossed it with clear powder.  I cut the sentiment out with a tag die and I inked through the die with  a Distress Ink.
Then came the fun bit, putting it all together. Firstly I stuck the black matt to the card and the wood panel to its black matt. I used foam pads to stick the boat on the wood panel  to give it some heightOnce this panel was complete I  attached it to the pearlised paper. I took some of the Natural String Burlap and wrapped it round the pearlised paper and added the tag. Once this was done I could stick the paper to the card; this way there are no untidy ends from the Burlap.
The final touch was to add some Self Adhesive 3mm White Pearls in the corners of the wood panel.
That was my first Design Team project finished. I have made some other things that I am very keen to share with you over the coming weeks.  Sam is  on Create and Craft next Saturday 10th May at 11:00am and 4:00pm.  Maybe you will be able to see some of my cards too. 
Enjoy the rest of the week.
Hugs Jackie
