You Can Never Cross the Ocean

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing a Mixed Media card designed with the brand new Artistic Outpost  (AO) stamp set, The Captain and the new AO Steampunk Gears Dies, AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad along with the previously released AO Grunge Elements stamp set and ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).

To create this card, I first stamped the ship captain image from the AO The Captain stamp set with archival black ink onto vanilla cardstock, fussy-cut and layered the image onto black cardstock for additional thickness
The background is one of the patterns from the AO Vagabond Treasures Collection  6x6 Paper Pad, trimmed and mounted onto vanilla cardstock before adding the knotted hemp twine along the printed banner image.

I die cut and embossed the different gears from the AO Steampunk Gears Dies and added some of them to the card front with antique brass brads before mounting the entire panel onto the dark brown card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the AO The Captain stamp set onto vanilla cardstock with archival black ink.  I added the distressing using distress inks with the compass image from the AO The Captain stamp set and splatter stamp from the AO Grunge Elements stamp set.  After distressing, I die cut and embossed the panel with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.

I mounted the sentiment onto dark brown cardstock and added the die/embossed gear with a brad before mounting the sentiment and the captain image onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope I have inspired you with this nautical Mixed Media card, and if you have time to relax and create a project using any of your Artistic Outpost stamps, we would love it if you would share your artwork with us on Artistic Outpost Facebook page!
