I love the sail boat image from the Everyday Heroes Collection and knew that I wanted to incorporate it into a creation with the Under the Sea Collection as soon as I saw the sunken porthole!
And of course I had to have that anchor sitting right beside it surrounded by all those lovely seashells and that adorable fish checking out the surroundings...
If you look very closely on the top of this photo you will also see that I've melted some embossing powder onto the card to give it an aged appearance and a little bit of texture.
When the card was assembled and completed I thought these two collections worked together very well to create a masculine card!
So, I encourage you to merge Heartfelt Creations collections together for even more stunning creating opportunities!
For more inspiration and to continue your underwater sea adventures, be sure to check out the amazing cards, layouts and altered art pieces the rest of the uber talented design team members have created for you this week on the Heartfelt Creations blog!
Until next time...
