ODBDSLC210- Sponging or Stencils week 2

Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and Monday was blessed.
For today's card, I stamped the fishnet in white on white and embossed with white powder and heat gun.  I sponged orange and yellow on then set it aside while I worked on the main image.  I used the Anchor set on white then used a nesting circle die.  I used the same die plus one smaller on brown to make my "porthole" which is popped up.  I then added brass looking nailhead 3-D stickers (Mark Richards).  The sky was sponged but the foreground anchor etc was colored with Copic Markers.
My husband is a Royal Ranger leader (like Boy Scouts through our church) and has a book of knots he uses so I used that to make a couple of nautical knots in the cords.
My sentiment came from the All Occasion Sentiment set, I just trimmed it then cut chevrons on both sides then sponged some yellow and orange on.  
The fishnet panel is also popped up.

 "This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast..."  Heb. 6:19
"My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness...When darkness hides His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace; In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil. On Christ, the solid rock, I stand all other ground is sinking sand.  His oath, His covenant, and blood support me in the whelming flood; when every earthly prop gives way He then is all my hope and stay"  This hymn goes so well and is, I believe, based on Hebrews 6.  I hope you like it!

Oh, Robin, this card is absolutely fabulous! The colors are so rich and beautiful, and I LOVE how you've made a porthole and added the faux-brads! Stunning! And the background is beautiful, along with the great nautical knots! My hubby would have had to do them for me too (he's a sailor)! And we share a love of the Scripture verse and the wonderful hymn! Praise God! Hugs, sweet friend!
