Double D - Lighthouse


 Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is our host today and her theme of choice is:
and here's an inspiration board she has created to help get you started . . .


 Today, I have used a very old wooden block stamp from a company called
Stamps Happen, Inc. (I don't see where they are still in business)
and I've watercolored my stamped image using Tombow markers.

By googling, I see this stamp is still available on Etsy.

Lighthouse Used Rubberstamp View all photos 80158 Stamps Happen

 After coloring, I decided to die cut it using the Memory Box
'Wrapped Stitched Frames' (#30117) and then adhered
it to my deep navy blue card base (though it looks black in the photo).

 A little doodling on the edges and my card is complete.

  I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!

Hope to see you at Double D! 

  As always . . .

  9. This card is spot on for the challenge, I love it. Your coloring is perfect and I really like your design. That doodling along the edges is genius, I never think to do that. Well done!!!

  10. Ahh, love these old woodblock stamps! Stamps Happen had some of the best stuff and this one couldn't be more perfect for the challenge. Your watercoloring looks fabulous and I love how the frame worked out being cut and then put back together. A nice effect! I'm so happy to be back on the team!
