By the Harbour....

Thought it was time I used  this lovely  Harbour image Delicious Doodles which was sitting on my desk waiting to be coloured up.

Image coloured with Copics, backing papers I found in my paper 'bits' box but was ideal to go with the Harbour image.
My lovely friend Val from Aquarius very kindly cut me out some Cogs/Gears from her Tim Holtz die and I thought they would double up at a ships wheel...
Just added the waste circles from the dies to a couple of the corners and then added the anchor....

What a brilliant card for a man and I'm so pleased I included the waste with your dies LOL!! I did guess you might use some of it and the cog makes a good ship's wheel.

Hey pretty lady - this card is so well done. Now I don't know why, but my first thought was this does not look like what you ordinarily do. I love your creation and you have the perfect papers and embellishment for it!
