Sail Away

Needing a birthday card for my DS who turned 17 today, I used the Mojo Monday Sketch along with Our Daily Bread Designs Surging Sea/Anchor stamp sets, and Authentique pattern paper.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Surging Sea, Anchor
The ship was stamped multiple times on Vanilla card stock, I trimmed down the panel, colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell WC Pencils, sponged the edges, then cut and layered the mast and boat with dimensionals.

To embellish my card, I added a glass bottle filled with small shells and beads, tied on some Brown and Natural Jute, pulling the ends so they'd fray, then added the Anchor charm that I created with Shrink Plastic.
