A Watercolored Lighthouse

I just had to create another card for the current Lawnscaping Challenge. This time it's a watercolored lighthouse. And it fits the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (embossing), too!




I love the watercolor technique. Here is my card:


Here I heat-embossed the Lawn Fawn lighthouse from the life is good set with clear embossing powder onto watercolor paper. Then I used Distress Inks and a waterbrush and colored the lighthouse and created the background. The German sentiment says: I miss you. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting!

Vanessa

supplies:
Lawn Fawn life is good set - Ranger Distress Inks - Pretty Pink Posh sequins - Mia's Stempelküche sentiment

Klasse Karte, Vanessa! Ich hatte am Wochenende witzigerweise eine ganz ähnliche Idee. Ich liebe dieses Stempelset von Lawn Fawn mit dem Leuchtturm (wie so viele anderer Lawn-Fawn-Sets). LG Sonja
