For my card, I stamped the anchor twice on vanilla card stock and colored them with markers.  I painted on some bleach with a small acrylic paint brush on the anchor and clouds. I used a circle die to cut one out and sliced off the bottom edge. I die cut a larger circle out of a multi color paint chip and attached the image on top. After cutting out the other image, I attached it on top of the base image with a little foam tape to elevate it slightly.

On the larger, shades of blue paint chip, I placed it back side down on the fish embossing plate and ran it through my Spellbinders Grand Calibur. With the die still in place, I used a sanding block over the raised fish on the right side.

The sentiment panel was punched on two sides and torn down the left side. I attached two eyelets and tied some twine through them. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.5.

    Wow, love your attention to detail, Julie! The dimension on the anchor totally jumps off the screen and I love the torn edge with the twine run through the eyelets. Very nautical. Beautifully done!
