Lighthouse Hello - For Your Inspiration #27

This week's For Your Inspiration photo challenge is all about one of my favorite subjects - lighthouses!  Isn't this just a gorgeous inspiration photo?

Once I saw the photo, I just knew I had to use one of my lighthouse sets from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company.  I pulled out the Light My Way stamp set and stamped my lighthouse in memento tuxedo black onto MFP white storm premium paper before coloring everything with prismacolor markers.  Once my coloring was done, I lightly stippled some bashful blue ink around the edges of the lighthouse before stippling a touch of Adirondack sunshine yellow by the light and then some Tim Holtz stormy sky and a touch of Adirondack caramel ink around the edges as well. I then took the Vacation Messages mini set and stamped some grass in Tim Holtz forest moss ink before adding my saying from You Light Up My Life stamp set.  After embossing some gray card stock using a Tim Holtz retro circles embossing folder and stippling some nite of navy ink over the raised images, I was ready to add some brads, circle clips and some white/navy organdy ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
