Hope Anchors the Soul

Love at first sight!
That's what it was for me when I saw this stamp from Neat and Tangled's latest release.
It's based on one of my favourite verses: 
"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." (Hebrews 6:19)

Here's the first card I made with it:


I used some watercolour paints to create my background,
which I die cut using Mama Elephant's Femme Frames dies.
I used my heat gun to dry the background and then stamped the Hope Anchors
stamp in versamark and then heat embossed it in white.
The card stock that was die cut with the scallop frame is PTI's Melon Berry.

I'm linking this card up to two challenges:

This week's Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Perfectly Peach...


.... and Virginia's View Challenge #1: Watercolouring


Thanks for looking!

I didn't know Virginia had a new challenge up?! Your card is cool, but still keeping in your style. But wait...no patterned paper?!
