Some totally cool nautical designs; An anchor die with sentiment stamps called, You Anchor Me (which I used on this first sample), A Pelican and sentiments called, By The Sea and some wonderful new papers. The paper I used today is called, By The Shore. There are also more stamp set, dies and papers that you will see along the hop today.
I cut my anchor from copper shimmer paper and then used some acrylic black paint, Turquoise paint and silver Inka Gold on it to age it.
I used the new paper collection By The Shore along with copper shimmer to complete my layers. Copper ribbon and a copper shell button (believe it or not, I found that in my button stash, just cut the shank off) was added to complete my card.
My second card uses the new stamp set, By The Sea, featuring a pelican and lots of nice sentiments.
I also used Pierced Circle and Circles for this card.
I used a ocean scape print from the By The Shore paper to complete the look I had going with my image. I actually lined up the pelican panel with the paper to finish coloring so that it would match better!!
I stamped the sentiments on scraps of the decorative paper then matted with white and made fish tail ends.
