Nautical Birthday

Hello friends,

I hope you're all having a great long week-end.  I have a few cards to share with you.  The first was made with a few challenges in mind:  

For the background I used corrugated board, colored with gesso and black distress paint.  The next layer was created with Distress Inks, a bit of stamping, some washi and a touch of texture with a stencil and texture paste (which I colored once dry).  I added a die cut for some extra interest.  The fun part was inking some gauze. I heat embossed the anchor to create a rusty look and added some twine.  Loved making this!  

Supplies used:
Gina K -  stamps (Birthday Blessings sentiment and Bold Flowers background stamp),  vintage cut from Ship to Shore stamptv kit
Memory Box Honeycomb corner die

For the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Tic Tac Toe Challenge (stamp, cardboard, washi, blue, stencil)
