For last Tuesday's Teapotter Tickle challenge, Sabrina asked the Teapotters to make cards w/lighthouses. (The last wk of most months the Teapotters exchange cards with each other and it is called the Tickle.) I didn't have a lighthouse stamp so I Googled "free lighthouse coloring pages" (I'd seen other SC gals note in their descriptions that their image was a coloring page so I tried it.) I liked this image and chose to use it. I didn't have the exact SU colors for last Tuesday's CC so I subbed yellow, blue and tangerine watercolor pencils to add color to the image. I did use a SU blue-tone ink across the bottom (stamped it off once to get a lighter bkgrd for my sentiment.) I did have SU tangerine and a SU green/blue color carstock, which I used. I am also submitting my card for Wednesday's SC and to the SOS136 challenge for an "outdoorsy" card.
Thank you for looking! :)

WOW, and wow. I love this awesome card. Great job, getting the beam of light in there, and it brings the eye , to the crescent moon, behind the storm clouds. You rocked the stormy seas, with the waves splashing at the foot of this gorgeous lighthouse. This is a wonderful scene, of a stormy night at sea. I just love everything about this awesome card. Into my faves. tfs.

What an awesome lighthouse scene you have going on here Gabby. I love your waves and the storm clouds with the moon peeking through. I can almost feel the energy!!

Now, THIS is why we had lighthouses in the first place - to guide us through stormy seas!! Kind of how I ask God to guide me thru rough times! Perfect picture and I love how you colored it!!
