Father’s Lighthouse

Father's Lighthouse “A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way”. Happy Father’s Day card for my dear old Dad. I actually thought it was this Sunday, so I’m way ahead of the game for a change.

“Father Guides” 3820E by Stamp-it

I wet the watercolour paper, then coloured the bottom half with ink sprays (Dylusion: Dirty Martini & Calypso Teal; Distress: Evergreen Bough), then while still wet, ran the dropper from Distress re-inker bottles Spiced Marmalade & Walnut Stain across middle. Set aside to dry. I stamped the lighthouse onto clear film with black StazOn pad, stamped it again onto scrap of white card, which I coloured in and cut out to lay over image on film. I stamped the waves onto scrap of mulberry paper which I tore along bottom and glued at base of lighthouse. I used glossy accents over the glass top of lighthouse. Then because I had used clear film, but didn’t want to spoil the look with split pins in each corner to attach the layers, I had to cut a frame out and mount over to cover up my 2-sided foam tape. Attached the complete frame then onto teal backing card.
