Anchors and Boats

So excited to be up at the Cuttin' and Stampin' blog today with a mixed media creation using Lawn Fawn Float My Boat stampset and Authenique Anchored paper.  Eek, could this stamp set from Lawn Fawn BE any cuter?!  Seriously!  And this paper is SO perfect for the masculine cards!  I used it to make a Father's Day cards for my husband and my father.

On this first one for my dad, I used a Tim Holtz stars layering stencil and some Gesso mixed with Adirondack Denim color-wash to create the stars.  I decided it looked like a rustic blue, so then I tore the paper to create the layers and used my Diztress-It-All to distress up the edges.  The Timeless Twine in Natural seemed like the perfect finish.

And I had a BUNCH of the gesso mixture left, so I used an UmWow Studio stencil to add some hearts to my husband's distressed-up card.  In this one, some 3 Girl JAM burlap ribbon finished it up.

Both images are colored with Tim Holtz distress watercolor markers.

Craftily yours,
