The image is Impression Obsession Boat & Lighthouse. This is my favorite of all the lighthouse image stamps I own. I return to it over and over again for masculine cards. It's stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black on Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock, and colored with Copic Markers.
I simply cut it out and rounded the corners with a corner punch. The background mat is a piece of 12x12 from my scraps-but no idea what brand. It's double sided with white core. I embossed the piece with Darice Beach Waves embossing folder and distressed with a sanding block to bring out the waves. The sentiment is cut with Impression Obsession Greetings dies and the anchor is a Memory Box die. I popped the image up with foam dimensionals.
