Brighten my Day!

Hi Everyone.

It seems like my faux vellum card from yesterday needs a tutorial, so I will be adding a tutorial page soon.

My card today is for the Progressive Challenge at Outlawz, the lighthouse has been drawn beautifully by Laurien at the Outlawz. I digitally coloured the image and was then stuck with what to do for the background. I suppose I could have left it and made it a truly CAS card, but it didn't seem right to me, so went searching my files - again! - for sea images.

I came across a picture from a magazine that used to give out digital images and this was amongst them, it's a lovely scene but I didn't want "real life" image with the lighthouse. I recently learned how to create a sketch from a photograph, so that is what I did, and it turned out exactly how I wanted it. I added a sentiment from Create with TLC. After printing onto basket weave card, I added 3D gloss to the lighthouse.

  2. A tutorial page would be great....I like how you've coloured in the lighthouse with bold and vibrant colours and the background is mono and muted, works so well. All finished off with a fabulous sentiment, thank you x

  9. Once again jealous at your talents...I apparently need to work on that commandment!! I love how you turned the background into a sketch but really like how you did the light shining off the light house into your sentiment. Clever lady you are!!
