You're My Anchor - special distress oxide background

Hello crafty friends,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and Easter!  The theme for today's card is definitely nautical and an idea for creating a masculine card.  Dare 2B Artzy's Anchors Away coordinating stamp and die set is what I used here.  I have a video tutorial also which will show how I did the background and the entire process for this card.



Here's a close up of the background showing all the colors - I was going for the look of a pier with aged wood.  The jute twine frame and rope adds lots of texture and interest.
