" The Lighthouse"

Wednesday,August 25, 2010
It has been a busy two weeks for me. I have been trying to catch up on my "Honey Do" list. My project for the last two weeks has been to remodel the downstairs bathroom. That included a complete gut of the room and start over. I re tiled the floor,painted, and trimmed the whole place.

The remodel came out great. The wife is happy, some I guess I did a satisfactory job. Now I just have to wait for the next request.

The card I posted today is called "The Lighthouse". I made it for a swap but never entered it. Just to many cards to enter.
It was colored with Copic markers. It's a little over size, 4 1/4"X 6.0". This was to accommodate the Spellbinder die that I wanted to use called "Label Ten". The sky was done with a mask and chalk.

"The Lighthouse"

It's a very simple card, but effective. The embelishments I used were buttons that my wife bought in Michaels. I colored them with a Copper Leafing pen fro Krylon. The rope in the upper left corner was made out of paper cover wire to resemble a coiul of rope. I wanted hemp string but could not find it in my stash. You know how that goes!!!
Hope you enjoy my effort. Your comments are always appreciated and welcome.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Bob... Glad to read that you completed the bathroom and that Rose is happy with it! Go Bob!!! As for your card, I love it! I have never colored my embellishments like that before, I may have to get one of those Krylon Pens to play with! Totally understand about not being able to find something in your stash! LOL! Your card is beautiful, I love your sky, and your shading and blending are always beautiful! Happy Creating! Sara

    Hi Bob. Great job. I personally feel the more simple cards are almost always the most elegant, and nicer. You did such a great job coloring, and I really love the sky! I will have to color some of my embellisments. Not tried that yet.

    Thanks for sharing, and good for you, tackling a job like a bathroom!

    Beautiful card. I like 'simple cards'. While enjoying the more complex ones, a simple card usually makes me feel "I can do that too", and is more of an inspiration. As always, you did a super job with the coloring, shading. Mary H.
