anchors away my friends......


           Off to another challenge .... playing with mermaid lagoon, salty ocean and blue print sketch, I squiggled them on my craft sheet with a spritz of water and dragged my paper through the ink.  I blasted that with my heat gun to help dry and then a couple of droplets of water after.
I cut the anchor frame with my Cricut and the 'Stand and Salute' cartridge with blue card stock.  I also cut the 'anchors away' with the same cartridge and red card stock.  I angled them onto the white that I faux stitched in red sharpie using the sketch as guide.  I tied both red/white and blue/white twine around and knotted right at that edge.  All adhered to a white base ...  and you're off on holiday.
