 It's Tuesday which is my day to share a project with you. This week is an "Anything Goes" week and I decided to go quasi-Steampunk with a slimline card featuring the "I Saw a Ship" Clear Photopolymer Stamp Set by Pink Ink Designs. This is a really cool stamp set with a gorgeous hot air balloon and a basket, sailing ship, house, and cake that you can suspend beneath it. The set also includes two sentiments and three banners. 

Here's my card.

The ship from the "I Saw a Ship" Clear Photopolymer Stamp Set by Pink Ink Designs with Copic-friendly ink towards the bottom of a 4" x 9" panel of white cardstock and onto repositionable label paper. The label paper version was fussy-cut then placed over its counterpart on the image panel as a mask.

The hot air balloon from the set was positioned (a bit off center because perfection is overrated) and stamped onto the image panel and onto repositionable label paper.

Light blue ink was brushed horizontally over the masked images to create a cloudy sky.

The masks were lifted and the images were colored with Copic markers. The image panel was trimmed to 3.75" wide and edged with light blue ink. 

Using a stamping platform, the Cityscape Reflections Rubber Cling Stamp by Andy Skinner for Creative Expressions was positioned against the edge of the platform. The image panel was positioned so that it was a bit more than .5" from the edge of the platform so that the city's reflection would be omitted. The stamp was inked with Grey Copic-friendly ink, then stamped.

A banner die was used to cut white cardstock. The die-cut was brushed with the same blue ink used previously. The "Adventure" sentiment was stamped with grey ink onto the die-cut.

The image panel was adhered to a slimline card created from grey cardstock. The banner was adhered at the top as shown.

  1. Hi Kathi. I remember when this stamp was first released. I couldn't wait to see how different designers used it. I love your color choices and the Cityscape stamp is perfect. I look forward to your next project.
