Square

This is actually a 4&1/2" card but I think it looks a bit oblong on here ?  Thought I would make something for the new Crafty Individuals challenge which is "Square" The stamp is of course one of theirs as are the lovely papers. The anchor is a very old PSX stamp and I've used a bit of bakers twine to finish it off.Please notice I tied a proper reef knot, the only knot I can remember from my Girl Guide days ! When I had painted the ship etc it looked a bit dull so I sprayed it with Antique Sprinkys and then with Moonglow Doubloons so its quite glimmery in real life.
