|Clear stamp: STAMPlorations Lighthouse - Large|
I stamped the lighthouse on watercolour paper and then proceeded to make a simple watercolour background. I stamped the lighthouse a second time, coloured it with navy watercolour, and then fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape. Before adhering the lighthouse, I sponged some Mustard Seed Distress Ink at the top to simulate the light. I created a sentiment in Microsoft Word and printed on yellow cardstock; it is also popped up on foam tape. I layered the watercolour panel on to navy cardstock to finish off the card.
The STAMPlorations blog is full of inspirational projects, and my card was inspired by a Spotlight Project post, "Becca Takes on the Ocean." I was inspired by the lighthouse theme as well as the watercolour. I have a long way to go to come close to Becca's creativity, but it was fun to play with watercolour, and I will definitely be doing more in the future! I'm linking my card to STAMPlorations Spotlight Project Showcase.
I was also inspired by the April Theme and Sketch Challenge at STAMPlorations, which is Stamps and Watercolours, as well as the April CAS Card Challenge at STAMPlorations, which had an optional theme of Dark Navy. Also linking to STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge.
Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
