You Are my Anchor

The current challenge at Waltzingmouse Fanatics is to use fabric on your project. I have some sticky backed canvas pieces in my stash that were perfect for a nautical take on the challenge.

You Are my Anchor-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps
I stamped the anchor and rope images from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Ocean Bound set on the canvas panel, then added the “you are my anchor” sentiment beneath them. The images were all stamped in Memento Luxe inks. They worked beautifully on the canvas surface. To get an aged look, I inked around the edges of the canvas piece with some Tea Dye distress ink.

The panel is layered over a navy fishtail flag strip adhered to a piece of kraft cardstock stamped with the large background stamp from the Woodgrain set. The top of the fishtail flag piece was wrapped with twine. I tied a red button onto the twine for one final bold pop of color.

Materials Used:
Ocean Bound and Woodgrain stamp sets (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch, Gray Flannel, and Love Letter inks (Tsukineko); Tea Dye distress ink, canvas panel (Ranger); Night of Navy cardstock (Stampin’ Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); Die-namics Fishtail Flag Layers Stax die, Electric Red button (My Favorite Things); twine (Lawn Fawn)

  4. I like the layout and clean, crisp feel of this card. And here is another example of stamping with Memento Luxe. I must go to the local shop and inquire - a stamp pad I do not own (yet)! It seems to do so well on fabric!

  5. This is simply fab! Love the wood grain background, the canvas textue and the lovely treatment to the top of the flag! Great card. Thanks so much for playing along with Waltzingmouse Fanatics!
