Inspiration by the Sea...

Welcome to the first group post for the June Papertrey Ink Release.  We have a fun theme for today's cards with all new stamps and dies, with inspiration from the sea.

My first card uses one of the new anchor dies from the Ahoy die set.

I cut the anchor out of Raspberry Fizz card stock and then added in some twine to the side.  I stamped the sentiment, also from the Ahoy stamp set.  The background was created using Watercolor Wonder stamps in Enchanted Evening.

On the inside of this card, I added a verse from the new set called Light of Life.  I love how it fits perfectly down in the inside corner...

I found inspiration for this next card on Pinterest.

I used some Distress inks to blend the water colors on the base of the card.  I used Post it Tape to mask of the top.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Guiding Lights, in Enchanted Evening and then added in a white boat die from the Ahoy set.
