"H" is for a Safe Harbour



Another two weeks have flown by and this is my offering for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge.  I would like to thank all you lovely ladies who have left me comments on my Alpha pages your comments are alway appreciated.

The letter for this page is "H" and my chosen word is "Harbour". There was  some indecision here, I nearly went with hair, then Halloween but eventually decided on "Harbour".  I used my Michael Powell stamps "Harbour Master" and "Harbourside", and some photos I took when on holiday whilst walking on the harbour side.
 
A black line was drawn round the definition then I decided to add a little rope round it and added an anchor just for fun.  Not sure if this is a good idea I do want to be able to close the dictionary so too many embellishments may not be a good idea!
 
 

I stamped the lighthouse stamp next to the definition and coloured it with promarker pens.  The "H" was cut out and stamped with part of the Harbour Side stamp and coloured, I then stamped part of this stamp above the definition and mounted the "H" over it.  A  few seagulls and the word "harbour" were added to, finish off the page I printed two photographs onto paper and hand coloured them to make them more like the stamps.
