Let Hope Anchor Your Soul feat. Gina K. Designs

I had the pleasure of playing with one of the stamp sets from new release at Gina K. Designs. You Anchor Me (also available at EH | SSS) was designed by Lisa Hetrick and it's beautiful and so versatile. I love the big anchor and encouragement sentiments.

I love that the anchor is big enough to be the focal point on an A2-sized card. I wanted the anchor to look realistic so I stamped it with grey pigment ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. Visit my corresponding Instagram post to see the shine in action!

I stamped multiple images with various shades of Altenew ink (see below for all six colours), used the backside of the stamps to 'colour' the leaves and top layer of the main flower, then fussy cut the images to create a dimensional cluster. Once I determined the layout of the flowers and foliage I added the 'berries' to the background, using the rock-and-roll technique and two shades of green ink.

Before adhering the cluster to the card base, I again used the rock-and-roll technique and two shades of pink and two shades of green to stamp the sentiment. Once that was done, I adhered the cluster with glue dots and rounded the bottom right hand corner of the card with a corner chomper. To finish, I added a large sequin and clear drop in the centre of the main flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Beautiful combination of elements for this card! Great use of the rock 'n' roll technique as well - I haven't used that for a long time!
