Lighthouse

     Those of us who play in the Progressive challenge were given this image and I thought it would make a wonderful encouragement card.


     This time I used watercolors to color the image and I framed it with a die cut which was in my "save it and hope to use it someday" stash.  I think that was cut with a Spellbinder's die but it was the negative piece between two framing dies that is usually discarded.

     I kept the design very CAS by mounting the framed image onto a piece of distressed and curled CS, then putting that directly onto a pre-made card front.  I added a bit of brown twine, then added the encouraging sentiment.

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

So pretty and love the way it's framed out in that negative piece! One of these days I'm going to see a lighthouse in real life hopefully. They're just so pretty. Love the sentiment you added!
