Lighthouse Card ODBDSLC112

I made a second card for Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge ODBDSLC112 Summer

Living on an island, we hear and see lighthouses every day. During the summer there are lots of lighthouse cruises and a festival, so I thought I would use ODBD's beautiful Keep My Lamp Burning stamp for this challenge.

I stamped the image first on this beautiful nautical paper by K&Co. Then I stamped it again on plain white CS, and stamped the compass again on the white CS. After cutting around the lighthouse and compass, I distressed them with Distress Antique Linen to give it a rustic and rounded effect and applied them dimensionally to the background. Then I cut the other compass out and distressed that and mounted it dimensionally on top of the other white compass so it was raised even more. Everything is mounted on a distressed driftwood brown linen textured sheet of CS, and then onto a distressed ivory card.

The kelp and starfish are on acetate and are from K&Co. The seagull and sand dollar are also K&Co. The seagull is cut from a little stamp that came from the same paper stack as the background paper. Then I used a piece of variegated hemp twine and tied a carrick bend for the other corner.

I am really excited to say that this card was one of the winners at ODBD!
