white on black lighthouse scene

Here's the white on black version, using the same stamp as in yesterday's post. This was a fun one to make too. I almost never never emboss - I'm just not good at it so it doesn't seem worth it...but it seemed necessary this time, so I dug out the white EP and did it anyway. **Note to self - get detail white EP when we go home.

The rest of the white on the card is watercolored - I sketched in the clouds and light beams first with a watercolor pencil, then blended with a waterbrush. The rest of the highlights are either watercolor pencil or crayon. "shine" is handwritten.

Guess that's it for today! Hope you have a great week!


  1. Very striking! I love the look of white on black, but have never used it myself! I will definitely have to try it!

  2. They're both beautiful, but I particularly like this one! Love the way you've done the beam.

  3. What a lovely card! Love this and the previous lighthouse aswell.

  4. Almost ten years have gone by; I still like this card. Thank you for sharing the details.
