You Are My Anchor

You Are My Anchor

I drew inspiration from a couple of different places for my cards today. One place was from a card I saw earlier Friday evening on Kylie Bertucci's Blog Highlights, Carolina Evans created a card that incorporated layered torn papers. 


Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #PPA303
Sketch By Shawn de Oliveira
Sketch From Teneale Williams
I used the sketch from #GDP038 to incorporate the torn paper & the colour scheme from #PPA303
to create a male orientated card with a sea faring theme. 
I can take them with me to use as displays when I go to workshops or parties & they will be perfect to use them for Fathers Day later in the year!

OK enough talking about them :) 

Here they are

'You Are My Anchor'

 I used Night of navy as the card base and and cut one A4 sheet into 2 @ 10.5cm x 15cm. I used some scrap Night of Navy under the Sahara Sand card stock.I found some Perfectly Artistic  papers that I had left and wiped, with my dauber & Mint Macaron ink over the top... I daubed some whisper white in other places to tone down some areas. I stamped with Night of Navy onto the ink brushed & daubed DSP with the Anchor from the 'Guys Greetings' set 2 of 2. And made some panels for the inside of each card.

After applying some adhesive to the outside edges, I tore both of the inside edges with the Sahara Sand First & then followed with the Night of Navy trying to follow a similar tear pattern as the Sahara Sand. These panels were then added to the front using Stampin' Dimensional's.

    I found some scrap Sahara Sand and stamped with Night of Navy the 'Ships Wheel' and the 'Lantern'  with the 'From Land To Sea' stamp set. I added these to the front of each card to make each slightly different.

To finish these cards I added a long thread pulled from the Burlap ribbon and wrapped and tied it to either side of the front panels.
The sentiment has been stamped in Night of Navy onto a scrap of thew DSP and held in place with dimensional's. The centre dimensional's, under the sentiment, has been doubled up to give height and the effect of movement.


I hope you enjoyed my card creations today.
