You Are My Anchor is perfect for this occasion. Then came the rowing element......do you have any idea how difficult rowing stamps are to find??? Well I couldn't find any, so my friend sent me a picture of the oars and I drew these and cut them out (and kept the template!!!).
The base is made of blue, white and green bazzill and then some Kaisercraft Pack Your Bags DP. Next is a piece of white (punched with dotted wave punch) and topped with more Pack Your Bags DP. Across this I added some dark brown grosgrain ribbon and topped it with a Sailor's Knot made of twine. The globe, sentiment and rope border from You Are My Anchor were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E21, YG93, B21, B23, E31, E35, 0). The globe was cut with scissors and popped up on the rope border. The sentiment cut with Small Circle Nestabilites and popped up on the oars. The oars were drawn with a 0.3 Multiliner, coloured with Copics (C3, BG75, Y17) as per the picture - the stripes are the Aussie colours that are actually on the real oars! I've finished off with a couple of silver brads in the corners.
