Lighthouse by the Sea


I hope you have all had a great weekend. I have a lot of family stuff going on so I haven't got as much crafting done as I would have liked. I have some deadlines coming up and I really should be getting on with bits and pieces.

This will be my last nautically themed post for a while as Sam now has just released an exciting range of really cute Christmas stamps.

This will be my Father-in-laws birthday card. The background is made from an old map covered in Micro Beads so it is very touchy feely just right for his partial sight.

The Lighthouse was stamped onto white card with Black Archival ink and them heat embossed with clear detail powder. Then I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils. I made a frame using two Spellbinder dies.

The Ship in a bottle stamp was stamped with Black Archival ink onto shrink plastic. I cut out the shapes and then heated them one a t time with my heat tool. It makes a cool embellishment. 

The sentiment was from the Lovely Labels stamp set.

So that is the last nautical project for a while. 

Here is a sneak peak of Sam's new stamps. 

Brand New Christmas Designs!

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving any comments. 

Hugs Jackie

Hi Jackie, this card is great all round for someone with poor eyesight - that lighthouse has such contrast, I'm sure he'll be able to see it. Fabulous card, and it love the plastic bottles! Maddy x
