Feeling a bit more inspired today I took out one of my wave stencils and using some clear Gesso created the background piece. Once the Gesso was dry I sponged colour through the stencil using 3 different blue oxide inks. When dry I added some clear gel gloss on the top and again left it to dry. Die cut the circle and added it to card front. I also die cut the porthole which is from Cottage Cutz using some scrap cs. I added some silver to the porthole nuts and glued the copper piece on top. In my stash I had the little lighthouse so I dug it out and cut off the bottom so it would fit behind the porthole gluing it all as shown. During drying times I had stamped the anchor from a GKD set called My Anchor and fussy cut it as well as the seaweed piece. I added the seaweed near the bottom and then played with placement of the anchor. Before attaching it I took some twine and wound it around the anchor then I placed the long piece around the rest of the card using glue here and there to hold it in place. Glad this isn’t a timed card because it took forever. This is for a male friend but I don’t want a sentiment on the front and will add one inside when I’m ready to mail it.
