This was actually the first card I developed for this workshop. Usually, I ask what the hostess is interested in seeing, either in samples or projects, so I can put a bit of that in the mix, and the hostess told me she was very interested in Traveler.
I had seen a card on Pinterest that used the reflection technique with the ship stamp, and that seemed to me to be a great technique for this workshop as most of the stampers I know appreciate a good masculine birthday card because everyone needs them, but we just don't design as many of them as the ones for women and kids. This card fell together with absurd ease:
MOJUS! (YILM!) There are a lot of ways to get the reflection technique, including using a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig sheet, but I like a nice window sheet for a workshop setting, since I don't want to make people clean the sheet. I have a box of acetate sheets meant for overhead projectors that is still going strong probably 9 years after I bought the thing, so I cut small squares of the stuff so everyone had their own. Basically, you stamp the ship at the top of the cardstock, stamp again on the acetate, flip it over and line it up to make the reflection, and gently rub the back to transfer the ink. Add a little sponging, a bit of blender pen with the black ink, and white gel pen for water and ripples, and you have this FABULOUS result (YILM!)
We also used the World Map background, and I had a few people buy that background just from this card, as well as a number of Traveler sets. That's how I know I created a good project!
