Heartfelt Creations - Lighthouse Shore Card

Hello! It is such a Beautiful Day!! The sun is shinning and it's warm but not hot and there is a little bit of a breeze. Today I have a lighthouse card to share with you using images from Heartfelt Creations. For the front of the card I used Lighthouse Shore 542G and Grace & Freedom 533D stamps from Heartfelt Creations. I stamped the images onto Pure Luxury Pure White cardstock from Gina K. using brown ink and then colored with Copic markers. The lighthouse image was stamped onto a 4 x 4 piece of cardstock. These are the Copic markers I used to color the Lighthouse Shore 542G image. These are the Copic markers I used to color the Grace & Freedom 533D seagull image. After I had the coloring done then I cut the image out.To create the background I used the Sea Scape Impressabilities™ I2-1016 from Spellbinders™ and Chestnut Roan, Bisque, Blush Rose, Surf Chalk Inks from ClearSnap to do a letterpress technique. To do the letterpress technique with the Impressabilities™ you simply apply ink directly to the Impressability™, add cardstock on top and run through the Wizard™ with the tan embossing mat. The pressure from the Wizard™ presses the ink into the cardstock creating the letterpress effect.Next I applied Antique Linen ink over the entire piece and then I inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink.Once all of the pieces were done I started to assemble the card. I used a chocolate brown mat for each of the seashell letterpress panels and also behind the lighthouse image and I used a piece of ivory cardstock for the background. I used Crafty Power Tape from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES™ By 3L to adhere my card.I also added a couple of flourish diecuts to the sides of the lighthouse image. The diecuts were made using Doodle Parts S4-121 die templates from Spellbinders™ and I also added the seagull. I used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES™ By 3L on the flourishes and seagull to add a little dimension.Here is a close-up of the seagull.Here is the inside of the card with the sentiment, God of the Seagull 1210D and I stamped the image of the seagull, Grace & Freedom 533D with a lighter brown ink in the background.You can also visit Heartfelt Creation Blog and Website to see more beautiful card and scrapbook page designs.
