The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project with a beach theme. This card was one of my board samples from last summer's release - I love lighthouses, and Gary's artistic style captures them perfectly.
I used Touch Twin Markers to loosely color the scene, and did some palette blending with a rubbing alcohol in a waterbrush for the sky and water. (I have a very old video showing that technique HERE - I should probably redo that one!)
The wheel embellishment is die cut from chipboard covered in aluminum foil tape, and attached to the card with a mini brad. The burlap ribbon is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. :)
IO products I used: Lighthouse with Flowers, Mini Nautical die set
