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!

Watercolor

Hello on this sunny Saturday! I am quickly popping in to share a watercolor card I made for the Lawnscaping Challenge No. 86


Here it is:


I've been waiting to play with the cute life is good set. Just love this crab! I colored it with Distress Inks and a waterbrush. The background is made with the same technique. The sentiment is from the year two set. I created the banner with some twine and washi and adhered it over the shaker window. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting!

PTI July 2014 Blog Hop Challenge

Today I am playing with the PTI Blog Hop Challenge again. I love the beautiful inspiration Nichole found for us:


Isn't it pretty? There are so many elements to play with, the inspiration is endless! Here is what I made of it:


I wanted to use the red gingham and the cute polka dot pattern of the bird. I used the button card die for my center piece. The boat and baby are from the Bitty Baby Blessings set. And I just had to add a button. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting and happy hopping!
