'I haven't taken part in any challenges lately so am ready to jump back in. Mark's Finest Papers had a blog hop centered on the beach and it ends today. The challenge is to post a 'beachy' card using the tutorials provided.
This is my card. I used white home made paper for the card stock and embossed it with a Darice folder. The lighthouse scene was printed on regular card stock and I used Distressed inks to give it some color before fussy cutting it out.
The background was made on watercolor paper and the Ranger inks with a little watercolor help gave it the finished look. I used Stickles to bring out the waves, but it doesn't show in this picture.
The stamp set is MFP Lighthouse 2012 for the scene and sentiment.
Of course, this beach scene makes me think more of the New England area so I may have to work on another card to bring out the beautiful weather FL is experiencing right now!
