Nautical Birthday - Masculine - Sketch Challenge

Here is another sketch challenge from Sunny Challenges & Creations.

I'm keeping up with my challenge of creating Masculine cards to replenish my stock.  Here is the sketch...
And here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I did something a bit different around the sentiment.  Instead of rolling out a framelits shape and stamp the sentiment on that, I took a Framelits shape, adhered temporary snail to the back, positioned it where I wanted it on Very Vanilla cardstock and with my dauber shaded Crumb Cake all over and then Soft Suede just around the edges.  I then stamped images from The Open Sea stamp set all over.  Once I figured I had done enough, I removed the Framelits shape, which left the shape, but all clean of any ink, but you can still see the impression.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment and called it good.  I'm not sure what the technique is called, I guess it would be a reverse mask? 

This card was created with the following Stampin' Up! Supplies:  

  • Stamps:
    • The Open Sea
    • Elementary Elegance
  • Punches:
    • Circle Punch (for Build a Brad cntr)
