Oceanside Lighthouse
by Donna

Hello everyone!

Today I have another card for you featuring the Oceanside Lighthouse and Waves die.  I told you this would be one of my favorite dies!


To make this card I started by painting a watercolor a piece of paper that is die cut using the Rectangle Basics Set. I die cut the lighthouse twice, once from a red stripe piece of patterned paper and once from licorice cardstock.  I saved the windows from the licorice die cut and cut the top of the lighthouse. Glue the top to the striped lighthouse and adhere it to the painted background.  Insert the licorice cardstock windows into the lighthouse. Punch a circle from a yellow scrap piece of paper and glue this to the card front. I used the Seaweed Stalks die and watercolor paper to cut the elements on the side of the lighthouse. They were painted with watercolors. 


Glue the seaweed stalks and the wave to the prepared card layer. I added some details to the lighthouse with paint and a black ink pen. Spatter the scene with white acrylic paint.  I added texture paste to the bottom of the scene and sprinkled it with sand.  

To finish the card, adhere the prepared card layer to a larger rectangle using foam tape and adhere this to a white card base.  Stamp your sentiment below the scene.  

Thanks for stopping by today!





Beautiful art card, Donna! This art piece would look gorgeous framed, it would make a special gift! Your watercolour background is perfect with the lighthouse. Great idea to add sand to the texture paste, like that! Using striped paper for the lighthouse makes it easy to get the look. Thank you for sharing this inspiring art card today!

I just received the lighthouse die in the mail. Now I have your beautiful card for inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic beach scene!

So cool! I love your background. Looks like you know when to stop. I always forget to leave a little white. Terrific job on the lighthouse/whole card!

Love your card and the creative use of the seaweed die too thanks for sharing.
