Let There Be Light

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be able to share this card.  I am the guest designer this week at Through the Craft Room Door after winning this challenge.  I had the opportunity to work with this gorgeous lighthouse image from Digistamps4Joy.

The lighthouse was colored with Copic markers and the background was created using Stampin' Up! Bordering Blue ink and a mask cut using an A Muse Studio die.  The light rays were sponged with Stampin' Up! Barely Banana ink and covered with a bit of clear Wink of Stella.  The image is printed on Cryogen White paper so it has a wonderful shimmer to it and the Wink of Stella really makes the rays pop.  The curlicues were created using the wire stems I cut from the mini roses.  I love when you can use every bit of a product!

I hope you will join the design team for the challenge this week.

Cupcake Inspirations has a color challenge this week so the lighthouse is going to shine some light in that challenge.

Inkspirational Challenges has a word prompt - Glow this week.  The lighthouse is going to glow in that challenge.

The current challenge at Alphabet Challenge is R for Ribbon.  The lighthouse is going to go light up the rest of the gorgeous ribbons.

Polkadoodles has a die cut challenge so the lighthouse is going to spotlight the die cut on this card in the challenge.
