Serendipity Stamps Guest Design Take Two










I am back again with another project for my guest design with Serendipity Stamps. This time I used the Lighthouse die along with the "Do Not Go" quote for a masculine card that would be perfect for a graduation. The quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I was inspired by Peggy's Point Lighthouse which my family visited when we traveled to Peggy's Cove Nova Scotia in 2003.



The tiny little lighthouse in the photo below was mimicked after Peggy's, I can't remember the name of it or where we saw it but I remember being there like it was yesterday.




The sky background was sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink I die cut the lighthouse in white, red and gold. I cut the cap off of the red lighthouse and glued it to the top of the white. The rest of the pieces were inlaid into the white lighthouse. I used a grey snowdrift die to mimic the rocky base Peggy`s lighhouse stands on.

This is so gorgeous, Tracey. That lighthouse is one amazing die. I live rather close to our Wind Point lighthouse, and it's always special to see or visit. Love the sponged background, and the red top of your lighthouse. That sentiment is absolutely perfect for graduation too. Really a lovely card. Bev
