ColourQ Challenge #349

I was having a bit of a rough day yesterday
and when I finally got to spend some time in my craft area,
I was in the mood to make an encouragement card.

I decided to use the colours from ColourQ Challenge #349:


I decided to use my Neat and Tangled Hope set,
which I heat embossed in white on watercolour paper.


I coloured overtop with my Zigs and a paint brush and water.
Then, I added some grey ink splatters.


I stamped the anchor in red and cut it out by hand.
I adhered it with dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking!

Sorry to hear your day was not so great and that you get encouragement from your own card. I love the pop of color from the red anchor.

Sending hugs and prayers that the roughness has passed and things are smoother for you! Remember: I'm always here, whenever you need a pair of shoulders to lean on or ears to hear. Your card: beautiful! And yes, it does evoke 'encouragement' with the sentiment and anchor pairing.
