Ocean Anchor Storm

 I made this for a Dare to Get Dirty Challenge on Splitcoaststampers DTGD14wendybell.
 I used stamps from the Our Daily Bread Designs August release. I started by stamping My Lifeguard off to the right onto glossy card stock. Then I used the masking technique to stamp more ocean and beach from this same stamp as I worked across from right to left. Then I stamped the large anchor from Anchor the Sould to finish off the design. I also stamped some extra birds too! I used ink to color the sky and sand. Then I used water based markers to color the other parts of the design. I finished everything off with some highlights and a clear sealer.
I layered the image with black card stock and added a sentiment with a banner. I used thin foam dots to layer with. The anchor is actually stamped on the banner and again on the sentiment for a 3D effect. I stamped the Crocheted Border Die on the card base at the top and bottom and let just the edges peek out. This sort of has a shell look about it and I wanted to add just a bit of texture.
