Hi there blog friends! Darnell's Twofer Challenge is one of my all-time faves, and this month's theme is 'Nautical'...Yes! First things first...the rules ~
I grabbed my new SSS Anchor die and created my first card ~
I thought a shaker card would be fun for my sister. We recently had a good laugh about our summers at the beach, spending hours in the ocean with a truck tube :) I also think sending love is always a nice thing to do! The background panel was created with alcohol inks and the sequins are a variety from my stash.
My 2md card is a thank you to my sweet hubby...he truly is my 'Anchor' ~
I started with ink blending with DOX inks and die cut the waves with a new MFT die. I stenciled soft clouds behind the anchor and added water droplets with Glossy Accents (a few too many). Lastly, I framed the scene with an antique frame die and embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.
Here is the photo for Darnell's Challenge Blog ~
