  1. Cut a 28 cm x 19 cm piece of the wavy lighthouse 1 patterned paper. Fold this in half and then cut along the wavy pattern on the card cover.  Ink the edges with brown pigment ink.
  2. Cut a rectangle 14 cm x 18cm piece of watercolour paper.  Use the stencil and crackle paste to create the wavy design, as per the photo.  Once this is dry, use the spray water bottle to wet the entire piece of paper.  Spray blue spritz into this water and allow the ink to spread and seep into the cracks.  Allow this to dry. 
  3. Cut along the wavy side, on the right hand side of the stencilled design. Distress the edges slightly and ink with brown pigment ink. Also run the brown pigment pad over the stencilled bits to add some brown to the raised edges.
  4. Now stick this down onto the wavy patterned paper, lining up the waves.
  5. Stamp randomly around the card cover with the Prima background stamp and brown pigment ink.
  6. Die-cut the ornate oval from the teal side of the lighthouse 2 patterned paper.  Ink the edges with brown pigment ink.
  7. Use 3D tape to adhere this to the card, as per the photo.
  8. Cut the paper die-cut anchor out and adhere it to the chipboard anchor.  Ink the edges with brown pigment ink.
  9. Adhere the anchor with 2x 3D tape, so that the various other elements can be tucked in underneath.
  10. Stick both stickers on white cardstock and fussy cut the designs. Ink the edges with brown pigment ink.
  11. Die-cut the various leaves and grass, from the various cardstock and add white gel pen highlights to the green leaves and brown edging to the white leaves. Arrange and adhere these and the flowers, in and around the anchor, along with the stickers.  Add pearls to the flowers.  See the photo’s for placement.  Use 3D tape for both stickers.
