Creation Station, Father's Day

Anchors are very much in trend at the moment!  So when I had a special request to feature a masculine birthday card in my next class I reached for The Open Sea stamp set without hesitation.

I started with a Hello Honey and Night of Navy colour combination in mind.  I inked up my World Map background stamp for the first time in the yellow tone and sponged on some blues before spritzing with a little water and stamping onto white.  What a ended up with was an interesting background in a range of yellows, greens and blues.  I die cut a circle from the background and added it to some patterned Night of Navy paper and splashes of new in-colours Tip Top Taupe and Cucumber Crush.  

The tag features the birthday sentiment from the Butterfly Basics set.  For me, the fonts have a bit of a old-world/nautical feel to them and worked in perfectly for this theme.

When the current Creation Station challenge called for a Father's Day card I happened to have the remaining piece of the World Map background still on desk.  It was an interesting challenge to come up with a card using this leftover piece.

I went with a very similar colour scheme but this time instead of Hello Honey I went with the darker tones of in-colour Delightful Dijon.  The green is a bit deeper than Cucumber Crush, a strip of retired Gumball Green from my off-cuts stash. I've gone with a Night of Navy tag and added a Happy Father's Day greeting from the versatile Teeny Tiny Sentiments set.
