F4A390 Thy Word is A Lamp Unto My Feet
It’s time for the Splitcoaststampers F4A390 “See the Light” Challenge and I decided to create a card using the Shining Light Clear Stamp Set (designed by Korin Sutherland) from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
I also incorporated the Time Out Challenges #89 Home Sweet Home Inspiration Challenge (I was inspired by the map, lamp and neutral colors) into the design and as well as the Word Art Wednesday #294-#295 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the lighthouse and sentiment images from Shining Light with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink and stamp onto a piece of vanilla cardstock.
2). Die cut the lighthouse image with a pierced tag die and the sentiment with a stitched square die.
3). Use a black watercolor pencil to color the lighthouse and draw a few clouds in the background and apply water with a water brush to blend the color. Dry the image with a heat tool and use a yellow watercolor pencil for the “light”. Repeat the clouds on the sentiment and apply a thin wash of yellow as well.
4). Use a clear glitter pen over the yellow areas and a fine black india ink pen to draw a few birds on the tag.
5). Mount both the lighthouse tag and sentiment square onto black cardstock and trim close to the die cut edges.
6). Trim a piece of designer paper and mount onto black cardstock. Add the horizontal strip with the knotted twine and adhere the entire background panel onto the white card base.
7). Add the lighthouse tag and sentiment with dimensional foam.
8). Knot a few scraps of burlap ribbon pieces around a brass spiral clip and add to the corner of the sentiment to finish off the card.
