Oceanside Lighthouse Card
by Donna

Good morning everyone!

I hope you're enjoying all the new dies featured in our blog blitz this week, as well as all the creative projects!  I love lighthouses, so the new Oceanside Lighthouse and Waves will quickly become a favorite die of mine!

To make this card I cut two pieces of watercolor paper the same size and ran one through the die cut machine using the Cool Cloud Collage die.  I watercolored the plain paper layer.  The die cut paper was inked lightly with vintage photo ink and misted with water (do not ink the clouds). Cover the clouds with a scrap piece of paper and spatter the paper with black ink.  Die cut the lighthouse and waves from watercolor paper.  The solid wave and lighthouse were painted with watercolors.

Glue two strips of washi tape to the top left corner of the cloud die cut panel and use foam tape to adhere this to the watercolored panel.  Once again using foam tape adhere the lighthouse to the card front.  Glue the waves in place and add some pieces of cheesecloth to the card front. Tie a piece of jute around the card front and embellish with a button. Glue the card front to a Crimson cardstock layer and adhere this to a White card base. To finish the card, add Black epoxy dots to the top right corner.

I hope you enjoyed todays card and don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the new Oceanside Lighthouse and Waves die.  You have until Sunday, March 12th at 11:59 p.m. EST to leave your comments.

Good Luck and thanks for stopping by today!
