The Stamp Man - Father's Day / For a man

My card today shows the Frantage Encrusted Jewel technique (EJT) which I used for the sea on this nautical card for a Dad.

Stamps used are Aspects of Design Nautical and Distressed Corners and Borders - both from The Stamp Man on-line shop. The corner stamp is Tim Holt's Urban Tapestry.

I stamped the main image with embossing ink and used blue and lava black EPs and then added some silver EP by using an embossing pen. I stamped a swirly border underneath and added some silver glitter EP and then did the EJT using Stampendous aged silver and shabby white embossing enamels as well as some pure white, clear and some shimmery flakes my sister gave me. Whilst this was hot and sticky I added an anchor charm and it stuck right in, no glue needed.

The prize as always is a generous £10 voucher for The Stamp Man on-line store, so I hope we see you over at our Stamp Man Challenge Blog for this popular challenge.

So have you joined in Tuesday Treasures this week? Please pop by and link whatever you have made or photographed that is special to you. It is just for fun and to share special creations with one another.

The sea is remarkable, it completely represents the froth and energy the waves have.
