Summer Lighthouse

  I'm up on the Stamp Simply blog today with this summery looking lighthouse card. Most of my cards evolve and change the longer I work on them, and this one really did (lol)! I started with a dark background and dark patterned paper frame, and look what I ended up with! 

The photos don't really show it, but the frame has text stamped on it in white pigment ink. The background was created by masking off the sun, and sponging distress ink over my mixed media paper. The die cut pieces were colored with Arteza Real Brush pens.

Supplies and Tools from Stamp Simply:

Gorgeous, I love the depth of the scene with your lighthouse in the background and the tree branch up front, I love your bluebird sitting on the bench overlooking with the birds flying in the background! Terrific coloring and like how you framed it all. Great verse to go with it too!
