ODBD-August Mid-Month Release

Good morning!
This is so exciting, a new release mid month!
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.


Hop along with the "Breadsticks"

Robin, your cards are just beautiful. I like how you made the anchor in the first one look rust and the way you colored the water so beautifully on the second one.

Great cards. Love the new papers, but your details on the anchor card are just perfect. The pelican card appears that we are seeing him through a spy glass!

Both cards are absolutely gorgeous, Robin! LOVE the way you aged the anchor on your first card, and the way you colored the ocean to continue the pattern from the paper on your beautifully colored pelican card! Wonderful designs on both nautical themed cards, my talented, sweet friend!

I love the paper you used on the anchor. Awesome card. What a great idea. Beautiful Pelican card.

I love nautical cards using the red and navy colors, but this card is absolutely wonderful not using those hues. Love the coral/peach and lighter blue tones used.

Kelley said...

Robin, your anchor is so cool and I love how you described how you achieve the look. Your pelican looks great. You always color so beautifully!
