This card uses the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge the circles challenge from Stampin' Royalty and the colors from Color Throwdown. This will be going to my father and as always, I really feel the pressure when making cards for either of my parents, because I want to give them something special. I'm happy with how this came out.
I sponged various blue inks onto a panel of white cardstock then flicked water onto the panel. Once that was dry I white-embossed some stars and cut it out with a pierced circle die. I kept the bottom part of the circle lighter than the top. I did a similar thing with the rectangular panel, using yellow distress inks and the water flicking.
With a piece of leftover blue, I embossed the word "light" using Crushed Curry EP and die-cut it with a flag die. The first part of the sentiment is white embossed onto a piece of slate cardstock.
The lighthouse was stamped using Fog, Slate and Onyx Black inks and I really like the neutral tones in front of the vibrant color. Unfortunately when I was sticking the two banners together, the bottom one must have slipped slightly and now my sentiment is crooked! I hate when that happens, but I didn't have any more leftover inked cardstock, so I had to leave it as it is.
Thanks for visiting!
