Luminous Lighthouse

 Hello there! I decided to get a jump start on Father's Day cards, so I pulled out my By The Sea stamp set ad made this card.

 First I stamped the lighthouse on a piece of Pure Luxury white card stock. I used Copics to color, starting with R27.

 Then added R22.

 Added W5.

 Added W3.

 Then filled in with W1.

 For the rock foundation, I used N5.

 Then filled in with N3.

 Added Y17 for the light. After coloring, I cut out the image.

For the background, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White to 2 1/4 by 4 inches, then sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink in the center.


 Then I sponged Memento Tangelo from the top and bottom, sponging much heavier at the bottom. 

 I masked off a horizon line with a sticky note and sponged Memento Potter's Clay. 


Then I tore an edge along the sticky note and sponged Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I adhered the lighthouse to perch it on the black cliff I had sponged, then stamped the small seagulls. I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and used Lipstick Red for the card base (4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches). I stamped the sentiment on Vellum and tore the bottom edge. It was adhered with Pop Dots, which I hid by covering them with the buttons.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you are having a great week so far!

This is just gorgeous! I love your step by step. I always think that backgrounds with copic images have to be done using the airbrush but this is beautiful. I'm going to have to play with my inks now too!
