This month the challenge at Craft A Scene, is Let Your Light Shine, and they want you to create a scene with Lighthouse's. It was a good excuse to get this lovely stamp scene out and use by Chocolate Baroque, from the Seashore Scenes stamp set. I stamped the scene onto white card using Versafine Onyx Black, and embossed with clear powder. I then coloured with aqua pencils, and cut out using a spellbinders rectangle. This was then place onto one of the new spellbinders dies that were released at the CHA last month. I have had trouble with some of the more intricate dies that they have bought out recently, so invested in some waxed (freezer) paper. By placing this on top of the card you need to cut, it makes the card pop out of the die once it's been through your machine, and the waxed paper just peels off leaving you with a perfectly cut die. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and the paper some that I've had in the cupboard for a while. It sort of reminded me of sand so seemed appropriate.
I 've struggled the last few months to take part in this challenge due to the family commitments that I've had. So this month I thought I'd get my card made at the beginning of the month, and get in early.
Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
