SU The Open Sea and Weekly Deals

For a change of pace, I pulled out some dark colors for a masculine card. I used the

PPA # 208 sketch for inspiration.

I was going to distress this up a bit but I am more of clean stamper so I left it as is, but I really do want to move out of my comfort zone some more. Be on the look out:)

SU The Open Sea Recycled

Oh, yes, Paper Players…I did it for your #140 challenge… I dug into the garbage last night and found this used coffee filter:
Filter in the garbage
I rinsed it off and dried it overnight.

Dried filter
Then, I set to work today on using it somehow. It just seemed  perfect for the ledger in the SU The Open Sea set- a great masculine set I hope sticks around;)

SU The Open Sea

I roughed up SU’s The Open Sea stamp set  with my SU Distressing Tool for my submission to Freshly Made Sketches #77 this week.

FMS Final 77-001-1

I stamped the inside of the card  with the anchor from this set and stamped the world stamp on the envelope to finish it off. Every stamp was used in the set- I love when that happens!
