Good morning! I meant to get started on this the past couple of days, but it took until now for me to get around to it - so I'm going to start posting the details of the cards I posted in the Contenders Blog Hop last week! Here is the first one I decided to share:
I used a lot of texture and sanding on this one! I cut the anchor and hearts out with my Silhouette Cameo, using Tim Holtz papers - love the warm rustic tones.
I used a bit of sandpaper to rough up the surface of each of those pieces, then inked the edges with coordinating distress ink.
The main background panel I trimmed by hand, then embossed it with a Papertrey Ink Woodgrain Impression plate, then used some sandpaper over the surface, and my Tim Holtz distress tool around the edges.
I also used the Papertrey Ink Linen Impression Plate for the main cardbase, then inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink.
I attached the main panel with foam adhesive, then the anchor, then tied the hearts on with some jute twine, and added a dab of foam adhesive to hold the hearts where I wanted them.
Finished off with the sentiment from Unity stamps, and a tiny bit of bling! Love using punny sentiments this way...you know, pull up anchor - and off we go? Anyway - thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
