The Open Sea for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #209

I pulled out The Open Sea today.  I haven’t created with it in for e-v-e-r!  It’s good to revisit what’s in your stash.  Besides, I think it turned out to be perfect for the Try Stamping on Tuesday #209 sketch.

I usually struggle with creating a masculine card.  This one came together effortlessly.

My color scheme is Night of Navy, Soft Suede and Gold.

After embossing the anchor image in gold, I cut it out.

Tip: I used the 1/16″ punch to remove most of the cardstock between the chain and the anchor.  It left just a couple tiny pieces that were easy to snip off with my scissors.  Then, I used the 1/8th punch to punch out the center of the loop at the top of the anchor.

Thanks for the fun sketch!
