Now for my creation for this week.
Sandra from Sandra’s Scrapshop was giving away one of her templates recently, just for a short time, and I managed to email her in time so I wanted to share what I created with it.
The template was for this lighthouse card which has been cut on my Silhouette Cameo. Please excuse the blur towards the top of the lighthouse. I think it’s the embellishments I’ve used there, as no matter how many photos I took they all came out much the same.
You can find the template for purchase here.
My main image and the sentiment are from the Summer Breeze Collection by Magnolia. If I use a Magnolia image that you cannot locate in the store you can email Laura via her contact page and she will order them in for you.
Here’s a close up of the image.
The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E11,E00, E000, E0000, R20 & R30; Hair – E44, E42, E40; Clothes – B16, B14, B12, B000; Hat & Shoes – C8, C6, C4, C2, C00.
Here’s a few more different photos…
I decorated the lighthouse using some retired Stampin’ Up papers. The cattails are cut from my Silhouette Cameo along with the Seagull & Boat wheel. The anchor is a die from the Doohickey Club #1. The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings embosslit by Stampin’ Up. I’ve added some real shells and a glass bottle that I picked up at the local discount shop. The glass shell, starfish and rope is from my stash.
One final photo….
