Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying a crafty summer! This week's challenge at Speedy Fox & Friends is to use metal!!! The possibilities are endless, charms, gears, brads, metallic embossing powders, etc etc! You can join us HERE with your metalworks creation. For my metallic embellishment I chose square brads, aren't they fun???!!!!
The lighthouse was paper pieced. We won't mention how MANY times I stamped, colored and cut lighthouses before I had it just RIGHT! Ironically, I set this one aside, unhappy with the result and worked on 2 more lighthouses before glancing over and thinking..."that's a pretty good lighthouse!!!" The sailboat was also paper pieced.
Check out this wonderful stamp set "Island Life" that I used for this card. I really like the different font styles on the sentiments and there is a great scripture included as well..
