Hello and welcome to my second card for the Happy Trails release by Purple Onion Designs. I think this lighthouse had my heart flutter the most when I saw the new images from this release. Don’t ask me why I have a thing for lighthouses – but I love everything beach, coast, and open water, so I think it might have reminded me of some of my favorite travel destinations around the world.
Since I didn’t want to distract from the star of the show, I decided to keep the card very, very simple: I stamped the lighthouse with MFT Hybrid ink, which is great with Copics and watercolors, and then colored it with my Copics. It’s simple blending from dark to light, nothing fancy. My Brother Scan n Cut was so kind to cut it out for me, and then I mounted it on my card base. I cut some masking tape in the shape of clouds and used it to create the shape of the clouds in the background. Distress inks and a sponge dauber let you quickly create a sky that finished off the composition. Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
