Anchors for Hope

Hope you're not getting bored by the image, this could be the third card with it, but I'm so in love with it at the moment.

I used:
Kaisercraft image stamped with Archival ink on glossy cardstock, brayered Distress inks for background, coloured with Aqua Markers, added highlights with a Sakura pen.
The anchors are from a Pink Paislee set, stamped with Versafine ink on scraps and cut out.
Quickutz large and small corners, EK Success corner adorner for border, Marianne Design and Spellbinder dies for circles.
Hero Arts large wood grain stamp and Distress ink, Liquid pearls.
The sandy looking background is made with gesso and acrylic paint, it's easy to make textures on it while it's wet.
