I am back with a few cards that I have made with Uniko Studio's fabulous new nautical stamp set. It is a mini set but so versatile :)
I do like nautical stamps and the focal ship image in this set is great to work with. Here I have paper pieced the sails in patterned paper - the blue and green checks work perfectly for a CAS male card.
However, on my next card I have gone for a more sepia/vintage look by stamping the compass in coffee archival ink on white card. I distressed it with Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap distress inks and tore the card. The torn card is layered up over some patterned kraft paper and the ship was stamped and cut out on kraft. Obviously the sails were stamped on white card and a bit of distressing has taken the sharp white off them.
Hopefully this gives you a feel for how the set can look clean or vintage and appeal to 'boys' of all ages. This ship is so classic that it will also play nicely with lots of other stamps that you will have in your stash.
Here are all of the images in the set:
I have other ideas to share with you tomorrow too on release day but for now there is lots more inspiration from the rest of the DT :)
Remember to stop by tomorrow for the release day blog hop!
