You're My Anchor

Well, happy Monday and hope everyone had a fun St. patrick's Day!

I had a super day with friends and family. My grandchildren had a blast on the hunt for gold that I set for them. I had them running all over the house to find the next clue until they finally arrived at their treasure. Good times were had!

I have a card to share today that I created for Freshly Made Sketches!

I inked up a cool new stamp I received from Unity. Then I had this brilliant idea that I would cut small slits and run my twine following the rope on the image. Well... didn't realize how difficult that was going to be, along with how time consuming. But, it does look ok.

A close up so you can see the twine:

Supplies used: card stock - vanilla, blue; patterned paper by Websters Pages; stamp - Anchored by Unity; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; button, twine - my stash.

I didn't like this stamp at first But I remembered my Buccaneer cart and immediatley thought a bunch of ways to use it. You did a beautiful job with the twine for the rope. TFS
