Hello Sailor

Two posts in one day? What is going on?!

I am so chuffed with how this card turned out!! This is another of my new Magnolia stamps and I just love him, he is adorable!! I coloured him with my ProMarkers. The main backdrop was created with some white card, Weathered Wood Distress Ink and a Kanban Lighthouse stamp set that I have had for a while, which is all to do with the sea so works perfectly with this stamp. The second smaller square is blue whitewash Core'dinations using the Darice cogs embossing folder, then sanded down to reveal the core colour. This all backed onto a coordinating colour of Core'dinations.

I used cheesecloth for a net effect and also created a small knot with some baker's twine. The sentiment was created with an alphabet stamp set that I have with invidual letters. No idea where I got it from, it is probably one of the earliest things I ever bought! The anchor is again from the Kanban stamp set and then die cut with a Sizzix circle dies. Three pearl gems in the left corner finish this card perfectly!
