OLC Summer Days

What great Challenges
The theme is summer. We live close to the water and there are various light houses in our state. The beaches are just gorgeous. The best time is going early morning to sit on the beach and watch the sunrise. This card is white card stock folded in half and masked off. I Stamped the light house scene from Inkadinkado first. I masked it and added the clouds/water from Stampscapes. I sketched in some little details with gel pens. I added a silver lining in the clouds for whimsical affect. I stamped the sentiment from Stampabilities,distressed around it and stamped the gulls from Stampscapes last. I used various colors from Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Collection and Archival Ink. I wanted the detail to show so I took one pic standing up with the card open and light stream through it. But you couldn't see the sparkle so I laid it flat on the dark table so you can see the glistening affect. It's amazing how the colors now look so different oh well~ENJOY!

Card Challenges:


  1. A fab card, Deanna! I love the way you have coloured it. Sue x
