Nautical Anchor Compass by Alison Heikkila

  1. Cut a piece of Mixed Media Paper to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."
  2. Stamp the anchor and rope border with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black along the right side of the paper, near the edge. 
  3. Emboss the image with Detail Black Embossing Powder. 
  4. Color the image with the Zig Clean Color Markers listed. 
  5. Using a fine tipped scissor, trim the excess of the paper as close to the right edge of the image as possible. 
  6. Tape the Compass Stencil at an angle to the paper near the top. You may want to tape off the scroll so that you don't accidentally ink it. 
  7. Using a stencil brush and the Denim Kaleidacolor inks, apply color to the stencil. I started with the brown, then used the gray, then 1 of the blue shades. Do not go too heavy with the colors. Keep them soft. 
  8. Ink up a sentiment from the Anchor set using VersaFine ink, and heat emboss with Detail Black in the lower right corner. 
  9. Spritz the Mixed Media Paper with Gold irRESISTable Spray and let dry.
  10. Cut the card base out of Ocean Side cardstock to the size of 5 1/2" x 8." 
  11. Glue the stamped and stenciled layer to the card base.
