Hi, Connie here with a card using the Anchor Of Hope set by Joy Clair. This is one of the older sets but still considered a goodie. One of my favorite sets!!
To create the background, for the card front, the anchor stamp was stamped in random spots on the white cardstock. The anchors were colored in using watered down Distress Oxide inks. I made a mix of several different blue tones and gray Distress Oxides to anchor the "anchor". That was matted on gray cardstock and then adhered to the card front. One anchor was stamped out, trimmed out and then the hook, of the anchor, holds the sentiment tag. Stamp the tag (gray tag or make your own) and adhere to the blue tone piece. Add dimensional adhesive, to the extra stamped images, around the tag. Splatter with black ink. Add twine to the anchor (holding the tag).
Joy Clair is soon to be celebrating its 5th year in business, creating these gorgeous stamps for all of us to enjoy. Check out the online store for all of the oldies but goodies!!
Thanks for stopping by~
