Add a Charm at Paradise of Stamps and a new DT Position

Good day everyone,

A new DT position to share with you today , a while back Laurigami asked me if would be interested in joining the team for Paradise of Stamps challenge blog, I could not resist.  I was very happy and pleased to accept.

The theme is  ''with a charm'' and you have 2 weeks for the challenge.

My papers are Pion Shoreline Treasures which I distressed and inked the edges to add a vintage feel
I also added some cheesecloth, twine and of course a charm

For my image I used 2 stamps from the Penny Black Ahoy set and masked them together.
Would you believe I have had this set for over a year and never inked them yet.

Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E49, E57, E55, E53, E51
Blue: B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, W3
Red: E19, E08, R21, W3
White: W5, W3, W1, W00
Shoes/Boat : E47, E44, E43, E42, E41
Black shoes: W7, W5, W3

Dies cuts are Magnolia Doohickey club #1, 
for the anchor, I heat embossed some black soot distress powder 
and then inked with some vintage photo distress ink.  
I also added some white Gesso to my embellishments. 
The boat steering wheel is also a charm.

I also added some clear drop beads in the corners

Entering my card in the following challenges
Vintage Challenge - Use beads or pearls
Crafty Calendar - Add some metal 
Whimsy Stamps challenge  - Use a die cut
Craft your passion - Anything goes
The Sketchy challenge - Theme 1-2-3 (1 anchor/2 images/3 sets of 3 clear drop  beads)
Simply Create too - Anything goes
Fab n Funky - lots of layers

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
