One of the Design Team members for Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, Chris Dickinson, created this beautiful stamp set, Light of the World. It appealed to me because my mother collects lighthouse memorabilia. I also love the sayings in this set…so appropriate for the image!
It is difficult to see in the photograph, but the background of the lighthouse has a variety of shades of Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue and Almost Amethyst…making it look like the clouds and then the water. It is a technique from Technique Junkies called Reinker Splash (minus the metallic ink). The lighthouse was stamped in Black Stazon on top of the background. I layered the image on Basic Black, then Almost Amethyst.
The Base card is Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue with a layer of Whisper White. Then a layer of Brocade Blue. I used some Bashful Blue Designer Patterns Paper and layered it on top of a section of Almost Amethyst, using the Eyelet Border Punch across the bottom. I added two tabs of White grosgrain ribbon and then stamped the words Shine Your Light with Basic Black on Whisper White and punched with the 1 1/4 Circle Punch, then layered it on 1 3/8 Almost Amethyst, the punched the Bashful Blue with the Scallop Circle Punch and pierce each of the scallops with the Paper Piercer and Mat.
