There have been lots of variations on this image “floating” around the Web for the past two months. I love to mask and sponge, and this card uses both a conventional mask (covering the sails) and a reverse mask (for the sun).
What’s a little different about this card, which we made in camp last month, is that the image is stamped on fabric. Specifically, I tore up worn and bleached-to-death dishtowels — the flour sack type. Although I stamped the sample, above, with Craft ink, using Classic ink worked beautifully and didn’t give us the gloppiness you see at the top of the mast.
Because the fabric was so soft and such a loose weave, we adhered it to a piece of card stock. This gave stability for stamping and sponging. The results were simply fabulous!
