Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge - August!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!
Today I have another page of my Desktop Calendar to share with you as part of the Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge!  I had so much fun creating this!  There are lots of fabulous of calendar products available HERE at Taylored Expressions....we'd love you to play along...Taylor's blog has all the deets!
For my August page I inked up the adorable new Life Saver set from Taylored Expressions.  I stamped the dolphin in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.  I then fussy cut him out and tucked him through the life preserver I cut with the coordinating Life Preserver and Anchor Taylored Die.  After cutting it out I added silver brads through each corner.

I cut a piece of blue cardstock out with the Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die and impressed it with the  Waves and Bubbles Taylored Impression Plate.  I added some stars using the Seeing Stars Taylored Dies, along with some rope twine that I tied in a nautical knot.  I stamped a sentiment, "You're My Anchor" and cut it into a flag shape and tucked it under the life preserver.  The whole panel is popped up with Foam Tape.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on this page.

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on this page.
