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?

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.

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
