Watercolor Lighthouse - Stampin' Up! From Land to Sea

  After poking around Pinterest and seeing how some people were using the From Land to Sea set I was inspired to create a beach themed card.

  I used the Work of Art set to "color" my tag with the lighthouse stamped on it.  

  The card base is Mint Macaron then a layer of the map paper from Typeset Specialty DSP. I added a band of black cardstock next to help set off the different colors.

  To make the tag I used the scallop tag topper punch with some Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the lighthouse in black.  Then I colored it in using different Work of Art stamps.  The sand is Tip Top Taupe ink, the lighthouse is Mint Macaron and the sky is Soft Sky.

  I added a candy dot in Crumb Cake (a close match to Tip Top Taupe) to the corner and then the tie is the new Very Vanilla thick baker's twine which has a great nautical feel to it.  The tag is popped on dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Hello Amanda: I love this card with the beautiful Light House tag, seems to me that this DSP was made for this set, truly an amazing pair. The water color wash you gave this tag looks amazing, simple and elegant, beautifully done.
    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog about the little robot with the broken arm, this set is just so darling and this image was just what the doctor order for my little granddaughter.
    I hope you visit me again.
