I took the Carta Bella Anchors Away stencil and taped it over the top of my Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I then sprinkled on some Brushos in ultramarine and spritzed with water. See the blobby section in the middle--a bit heavy with the water but let's call it artsy. Btw, I immediately took the stencil off and set aside the panel to dry.
I diecut the sailboat out of yellow striped paper and then used a Copic to brighten the yellow to match the frame. Love that shade! I used the wavy edge of a rectangle die to create the waves on the bottom panel. The sentiment is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black. I punch a hole in the anchor of the sentiment then ran twine through it. The anchor you see here is part of a string of ribbon anchors. I knew I'd find a use for those some day! I also cut a tiny little red flag to fly on the sailboat's mast. So cute!
