Linda's Challenge #2
Hello and welcome to Linda and my 2nd challenge to use the same image to create a card. You can see the results of our first challenge HERE.
Today's card uses this awesome lighthouse image from Cornish Heritage Farms (sadly it is retired and this company is no longer!!)
To create the card I started out making that interesting background with scrap pieces of designer paper. I then used my Labels 2 (Nestabilities) to cut it out. Then, I stamped the lighthouse image and cut it out with an oval die (Nestabilities) and colored it in using my inks and a watercolor brush. Some crochet yarn and a small sentiment tag (Mixed Messages, Papertrey Ink) and this clean and simple card is finished!
This style that I used is quite a bit different than Linda's typical beauties!! I can't wait to pop over to Linda's blog and see what she did with this image.
