We Have an Anchor - Version 2



I decided to make another card on the theme We Have An Anchor.

This time, we have a boater in treacherous waters. He may be oblivious to the danger that could overtake him at any time. Isn't it great to know we have a solid anchor holding us steady during those times when we may not even be aware of danger nearby?

Front:
The background is aqua embossed paper glued to the white card base. Waves are cut at size 2-1/2 and the boater is size 2. (See cartridges used below)

I highlighted the waves on the tops with silver, and darkened the bottom edges of waves in blue. Anchors, sand and sentiment are described in my previous posting. For this card I "popped" the front anchor with thick dimensions for more definition.

Inside:
Again, I have used the prepared music excerpt described in the previous card posting.  The edges of top and bottom panels are sponged with "Dune" for a sandy look. Anchors and front and inside are shadowed with another anchor cut from back. I added a little extra sponging of blue and sand surrounding the anchor.

Cartridges used:
Anchor - Life Is A Beach
Boater and waves - Going Places
