I was inspired by a card I saw on splitcoast stampers.I didn't have the stamp so I decided to draw the light house as best as I could. I think it has turned out ok! I painted with water colour, enhanced and with colourpencil on normal drawing paper. I distressed the edges by tearing them and coloured them with Tim Holtz 'vintage photo' distress ink.he cover of the card has the sentiments printed on vellum. I cut a window to fit the words, into a trifold card and then sandwiched the sheet of vellum. I finished it off with some more distress ink around the edges and a bow.On the envelope, I stamped the lighthouse image and the birds from Inkadinkado's Coastal Maritime stamp set, first with Memories 'Sand' dye ink and then over it in Versafine 'Onyx Black'.
Again the card was finished off with Tim Holtz 'Vintage photo' disress ink.
I was unable to write my wishes for my husband in the card as it would disturb the final presentatin of the card, so I made a little notecard to go with it. I applied the same techniques as the envelope, on the notecard.
I think the final result was quite spectacular...what do you think?!!
