My anchor

I have another masculine card to share with you today.  I enjoy making my own backgrounds and it helps because then the colors are a perfect match... which is not always easy for me since I have a mish mash of paper from all sorts of different companies.

The background is made with ODBD Ocean Treasures and Sand Dollar Bookmark.  Lots of sponging with Distress Inks Tea Dye and then sprinkled with drops of water.  I stamped the anchor image in Versafine black and sponged in the sky and sand while keeping it in the Spellbinders Label 2 die.  The anchor and rope were colored with Copics and I added a little anchor charm.

Leaving you the blessing found in God's Word from Hosea 10:12 which says, "Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you." Hugs, always!
