This card took a while to come together. I knew I wanted the lighthouse in the oval with the sponged sunset in the background, but that was about as far as I got. I masked the lighthouse before sponging on the yellow and orange. Then, I removed the mask and colored in the lighthouse light in yellow and the lighthouse in gray.
I decided to have the background piece mimic the lighthouse stripes with the Irresistibly Yours DSP. I first tried to use Black Staz-on with my brayer to color in the stripes... OOPS! The extra color did not come off...and now my brayer was yucky too. Ugh! Luckily, I had the Staz-on Cleaner... worked like a champ. I got another piece of the Irresistibly Yours DSP and colored the black with my Memento Ink with the brayer.... whew!
I like the flag sentiment, as it reminds me of sailing. Goes perfectly with the lighthouse image (in my opinion).
Thanks for stopping by!
