Nautical Fun

Pin It
 So excited to share my little card with you today....This is a teaser for a new a la mode called "You Anchor Me". She is so sweet and I thought she needed a little sail boat. I just cut a few basic shapes from patterned paper and used a bamboo skewer as my mast.

I stamped her on X-press it paper and colored her up with my copic markers. If you look close at the anchor it has spots of rust and algae clinging to it.
