Tickle a Teapotter time once again. It really is fun getting these special cards and having an opportunity to get to know other crazy tea potters. The theme is Lighthouses. I have lived on the west and east coasts of Canada so have seen many and love them. I loved the sound of the fog horn, it was such a safe sound.
This is my card. Embossed the white. Black was stamped with versa mark and heat embossed with detail white ep. Used two different frames. Image is on dimensionals. Added die-cut corners and half pearls.
What is great is that I actually have my card done and posted on Tuesday.

This was my first lighthouse stamp, and I so nearly used it! I'm still amazed that I haven't yet seen the same lighthouse used twice this week. As Elizabeth says, the aqua is a lovely contrast with the black and white, and the fine lacy corners are lovely.
I miss the fog horns. I remember hearing a program about why they had become redundant, but they were one of those iconic sounds. A bit annoying when they went on for a couple of days, but you sort of tuned them out after a while.
