Hope Anchors The Soul

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.

Once again, it's been awhile!  The last couple of weeks have been super busy and I've really been missing my "me time" in my studio. I'm happy to say that all VBS projects were completed in time and we had a great turn out this year! We only had a couple of "oops" and they were corrected quickly and fairly easily and everything turned out great.

Anyway, all of that to say...I finally had a chance to get inky!
So, here we go....

I really love this beautiful stamp called "Hope Anchors" from Neat and Tangled.
I stamped onto my inked up background with embossing ink and used Ranger's "Gold Tinsel" embossing powder for lots of shimmer and sparkle.

These metallic cards are so hard to photograph! I wish I could better capture the shine.
The mats were created with Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean.

I added a few gold sequins and some red and white striped twine as embellishments.

I wish I had better photos to share with you, but these will just have to do!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits and sweet comments more than you know! I hope to catch up on my visits to see what you lovely, creative ladies have been up to while I was in VBS mode.  Take care and I'll see you soon....
