"Maine Lighthouse"

Sunday,May 30, 2010

I love lighthouses. The stamp that I used today is from a partial "Stamp'n Up" set that I bought at a yard craft sale. I believe it was originaly a four stamp set, but I only got two. And I must say for a very good price. I can not pass up a bargin.

Here is my rendition of the stamp;

"Maine Lighthouse"

The image was colored with Copic Markers. After the image was colored the image was cut out useing a Spellbinder die "Label Seven". Before the cut out image was removed from the die I drew around the inside of the die with a Spica Blue pen. The water at the bottom of the image had some "Crystal Lacquer" applied. The mat for the image was cut with the "Label Seven Die" in the next larger size. The background papers were from scraps that I had in my stash.

The sea shells that are at the bottom of the card are buttons that I had on hand. They were colored with a Krylon Copper Leaf pen. Some Copper Stickles were added to the corners of the mats. All of the matted items were popped up using double-sided carpet tape. A piece of jute string was tied into a bow and attached to the card.

Sorry I did not keep track of the colors used on this card, I'll do better the next time. This card is simple, but fun to make.

Hope you enjoy it. Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    What a beautiful card! I was raised on the eastern seaboard and miss the lighthouses and water so much! I now live in Arizona and the closest body of water is my garden bathtub. Sigh. Great card, you did a great job. --Gail Lass

    Gorgeous card Bob! Reminds me a bit of Florida. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I will try to add more technical details in my posts. For those sunset pictures I used the 18-55mm kit lens and also a 70-300mm lens. No filters were used. They weren't needed as the sunset had a beautiful, rich color scheme that I thought was perfect as is. Thanks again for your comment it was very much appreciated. Sue
