CDS Sneak Peek - Sheltering Lights

Isn't this set beautiful? Welcome back to card 3 of 4 today (to see the others just scroll down my blog). This gorgeous set is called Sheltering Lights and features 2 lighthouses. It will be available on July 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps.

I created this card for the CDS DT Sketch Challenge provided to us by Laurie Wilson. It worked perfectly to create this sponged sunset background! I literally sponged the colour on the paper using some masks and then covered the water area with Versa Mark and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder for a wet look.

I watercoloured the lighthouse with Stampin' Up! Re-Inkers and my Aqua Painter. I then trimmed it to fit in the corner of the background paper and then added dimensionals to paper tole it. This card really didn't take me too long to do because I wanted the image to me the main statement so I kept the rest of the card relatively clutter free.

Don't forget to hop around and see all of the wonderful cards that the girls have come up with and come on back a little later today to see the one of the newest sets in the Dreamtime Designs line :)
