Crafty Sentiments Release Blog Hop 12th - 16th July 2010.

Thank you for joining us for Crafty Sentiments Release blog hop. This blog hop is running from July 12th-July 16th and will reveal a new image each day.

Below is a list of the designers that are showing this image

Pop over and see what they have made using this same image as myself.

As soon as I saw this super cute image by designer Cheryl Alger I thought of the anchor on a large ship and the captain shouting 'Ahoy there' so just had to use those things. The anchor itself was an svg I got from Aymee over at A Southernbelle's SVG's which I resized, I then added the chain effect links which I made in SCAL2 out of seperate rectangles, to give a little more effect to my card. The words Ahoy and birthday boy were cut using SCAL2 also with the font 'Hobo BT'. All the pieces were shadowed and raised on foam pads. I coloured my little 'Sailor Boy' with Promarkers and then mounted the top of him with foam pads and the bottom stuck down flat to give definition.

We also have a badge for the release. That is below!
