CAS: Lighthouse



I created this card for the color challenge on StampTV which was to use black, red and white. The new set Guiding Light from Gina K. arrived so I figured why not get the lighthouse stamp all inky :o) I did consider adding a lot of layers and such, but went clean and simple instead. I must say it was a bit liberating to not have to fill all of the space... just allow the image and verse to speak for itself. :o) I colored the image with Copics and the card base is Pure Luxury Heavy Weight White. I ended up paper piecing the houses next to the lighthouse because the red Copic got a little out of bounds around the windows so I had to cover up my little mistake :o)

Have a great day!

I used this same image and the sentiment on a sympathy card...it looks so different. I really love this set. Great job with it!
