I get the privilege of creating and sharing a project featuring the "Hey Sailor!" stamp set for the hop. So here is what I came up with!
This was my dad when he served in the Navy in the 70's. It is one of my favorite pictures of him. It didn't scan too well but it will do.
I used SVG Cutting Files for the paper frame and stamped it with the new Stripey Background Stamp. I love how it didn't come out perfectly and created a distressed look.
I then embellished it with the Anchors and Hearts Dies, Layering Heart Dies , 3 Stars Stitched Dies, and sequins. I cut a hole in the heart using the Large Tag die to linked it with the chain.
I added the sentiment from "Hey Sailor" onto a banner from Vintage Stitched Labels. I decided on this sentiment because my dad left his small town in Iowa at 17 to pursue his dreams in the Navy.
