Let FAITH be your guide

Hello there. I feel like it has been forever since I have been here posting a creation or 2. I have had a crazy 2 weeks of work. No time to craft :(. But alas here I am. It is supposed to be summertime here in Southern Californina, but it has been raining for 2 days.....but we need it and I love it. It reminds me of all those times in my child hood that the summer storms were a favorite part of my growing up. Splashing in the water in the summertime. Water is the background of my life. I grew up going to the Colorado River every summer. Which brings me to my card.

My background is made from Alcohol Inks from Tim Holtz blue,slate,and pearl.

I then use the slate on another piece of glossy paper and die cut the anchor out of that. 

I die cut the anchor out of my background piece and inlaid the grey one in it's place. 

The sentiment is from paper smooches spiritual sampler.

The splash dots I have had in my stash forever.

I layer my piece off center onto craft card stock to represent the sand.

I want to link up to AAAcards. Waterworld & Dies challenge.

I also want to link up to Theme: Life is a beach

I also want to link up to Paper Smooches anything goes
