Serenity Bay

Hello and welcome to Monday.  For those who watched the Super Bowl yesterday, wasn't that a fantastic game?

Today I am sharing a card I made for this month's Craft A Scene Lighthouse challenge.  I started out by stamping my main lighthouse image from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company set called Island Life in memento tuxedo black onto MFP white card stock before coloring it with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker.  Once all of the coloring was finished, I stamped the grass blades from Scenic Selections in Tim Holtz forest moss before stamping the birds from Scenic Selections and the fishermen from Silhouette Mini Selections in memento black.  Then I stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink for the sky then layered before adding some Making Memories sand dollar brads.  The final touch was to stamp some shells from Silly Shells directly onto the card before adding my layered image using glue dots.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
