Seaside Anchor

Good morning all!
How time flies, it's Thursday already!
Time for this weeks Just Inklined card !

I've made a Beachy type card! The image I have used is
a perfect image for a male or perhaps just a beach lover.
So many occasions spring to mind.....
I used a Kraft base with a strip of corrugated card in the same colour.
Some gauze, raffia, fish charms, an anchor charm & a little shell.

I coloured my image with promarkers. The sand was done with a distress
marker. I have only one, in Vintage Linen, but it worked perfectly for the sand!
The sky was Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I popped up the image on some foam tape.

The usual side view to finish!
Hope you like it! Thanks for hopping by!
