You Are My Anchor -- for DigiStamps4Joy

It's Wednesday, and it's time for some mid-challenge inspiration on the DigiStamps4Joy blog.  Our current challenge is "For the Boys".  My husband and I love to kayak and spend time on the water -- especially Lake Superior.  So, I went with a nautical theme for this challenge:

I used the beautiful DigiStamps4Joy stamp, "My Anchor" on this card: 

I colored the anchor with Copic markers, then fussy cut it. I placed it over another stamped image of the anchor.  It was mounted with foam tape on the card base.  I used Fancy Pants paper on this card.  The twine was braided to look like an anchor rope.  It is Cherry Red baker's twine from Timeless Twine. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company
Come join in on the "For the Boys" Challenge.  You have until July 22!
