This is my first Tea Potters challange, hope I got it right. I used ivory watercolor paper. First , I spritzed the paper lightly with water. Now I sprinkled on the shades of Brushos, and spritzed it with water again and used my drying tool , and patted it dry. I've only used Brushos one other time, so I didn't really know what I was doing. Any way, the colors fell just right for a water scene. After my paper got dry, I stamped the etched lighthouse in. I shaded the clouds with white, and gray watercolor pencils. Now I used a black gel pen, to define the lighthouse, then I colored it in with watercolor pencils. I used a white gel pen, and a black gel pen along with a turquoise pencil , to define the waves, and the black gel pen, to define the bird in flight. Once the coloring was done, I added white lace stickles in the clouds, and water, and in the lighthouse top. I just thought the scene needed a little shine. Thanks for the fun challenge, and thanks for looking.

Wow, Marg - those Brushos make a glorious sunrise or sunset sky for your lovely lighthouse. Your one reminds me of the ones we see as we leave Ireland on the ferry if we take the car to France - only our seas are much greyer, not that beautiful sparkling blue.
This is perfect for the challenge theme! And with the Teapotters it's always 100% optional whether you participate in the sending part of the tea-party or just make a card inspired by the theme, so there's no "wrong", anything is right.
