This card started from the CAS challenge sketch by mocjen. I know this is pushing the CAS envelope, but I just can't seem to stop myself! I started with the log book image that I punched with into 3/4" squares. I crumpled these and added some tea stain sponging...I didn't like the look of them directly on the Crumb Cake base so I mounted them onto a piece of Early Espresso then distressed the edges. The ship was stamped with Early Espresso onto Natural Ivory paper. I used my Aqua pen and crayons to add some extra color...I like the way the ink smeared too. I also tore the edges, crumpled and sponged this too. I love the old world map image so I stamped that behind the log book....then, I thought I needed a little something more so I scored a frame then sponged over that with some Early Espresso...it just HAD to have some hemp so I tied a knot around the log book base. So, is it still CAS? I think so...anyway, can't wait to give it to my retired Navy hubby on Sunday!
