your love is my anchor

Good morning! I was gone and busy all day yesterday, so I didn't have time until this morning to pop this on my blog! This is my card for the Second day of the Unity Itty Bitty a Day Facebook challenge:

I literally made this in less than 10 minutes before dashing out the door for the day - and I couldn't be happier with how it came out! Especially considering how little time I spent on it! I used the itty bitty Love is my Anchor, inked it with watermark ink, then inked over the top with dark blue PTI ink, then sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heat embossed. Did the sentiment the same way, but with black ink. 

Next, I used some Faded Jeans Tim Holtz distress ink around the edges to add some depth, and then the white splotches were made by spraying with white Mister Huey's mist, then blotting several times with plain paper. I love how it gives it almost a Bokeh effect! It also makes the mist dry almost immediately - which I needed in my hurry yesterday! I finished off with a couple wraps of natural jute twine, tied in a soft bow.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back a little later with my Day 3 card - I'm gonna be busy today trying to get a bunch of projects caught up! Make sure and stop back by tomorrow! I will be part of a blog hop with a FABULOUS prize!!!
