To the Lighthouse

A few weeks ago I saw a really beautiful tag that used a lighthouse and seashore themed stamps, and it inspired me to use an old Kanban stamp, of a lighthouse as part of a scene, but to snip away the sea and rocks and leave me with just the lighthouse.

I currently have a bit of a craze for watermark stamping in Versamark on Kraft, so I had to incorporate some of that too. I've used snippets  for  everything but the base card, tearing the edges and covering the corrugated kraft, which has a blue chevron pattern, with thin gesso then sanding some of it away to give a weathered driftwood look. The background is stamped with an old fashioned map stamp that was a recent magazine freebie.

I am sharing this with
