Lighthouse Sketch


Hi everyone! This is the card I sent my brother-in-law for his birthday. The stunning image is the Lighthouse Sketch digital stamp by KLM Designs. My card base is Basic Black layered with PTI White and patterned paper made by Sweetwater. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. I sponged Bashful Blue to create the sky and Mellow Moss for the ground.

The shadow layer is Kraft cardstock. Using a sponge I distressed black ink around the edges of the image and shadow layer.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and is from the Clearly Basic Greetings I clear stamp set by KLM Designs. To embellish the card I added black photo hangers attached using small black brads and threaded the photo hangers with Jute Twine.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
