We Have an Anchor

Hello, and Happy New Year!
 I'm having fun today with some crafty Christmas gifts including 
Paper Smooches Anchor die and Wplus9 Seasonal Sentiments die.  
The anchor is cut with shiny silver foil card though it's
difficult to tell in the photo.  I used Ranger Distress inks
including Peacock Feathers and Pine Needles to 
sponge the bottom half of the panel, before spritzing with water to lift some 
of the ink colour - then spritzed on more ink.  The sequins are a light sea green, 
again hard to detect in the photo.  
I added a tiny black fish from Paper Smooches Sailboat die to the word "hope" 
which has been sponged with matching ink along the bottom.
For those in the U.K./Ireland, all of the above dies are available on this 
side of the Atlantic at Make the Day Special Stamp Store.
Thanks so much for stopping by today - as we head into another weekend,
I hope it's a good one for you!
