Shining light



Afternoon all, I'm here with my mid month inspirational share for Craft a Scene challenge where it's all about Lighthouses this month and the theme 'Let your light shine'.

When I did my DT pieces I really did think I only had one lighthouse so both my pieces this month feature that one, however I have since discovered a sadly neglected Stamps Happen one........in fact a whole draw full of lovely wood mounted stamps from that company so I think it's a sign that I might have a few more stamps than I really need. ?

Anyhow, to create this one I used a Stampscapes cumulus stamp for the sky along with an Art Impression boat, lighthouse, rocks and gulls and a Lavinia tree using just the edges across the top corner. All colouring has again been done with Pan Pastles.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Love that scene Brenda. Lighthouses are very popular around here as we are fairly near Peterhead and Fraserburgh. Love the effects you get with the Pan Pastels.

Take care,

Absolutely splendid the way that red ribbon with the white stitching picks up the colouring of the lighthouse. I do love lighthouses - there's just something about them. Bit of snow here today & very cold.
Take care

Gorgeous scene Brenda. Love the wau you have framed it with the grass and tree stamp to give perspective. I still love seeing your poppy header. The rate this year is passing it won't be long before that time comes round again. I scattered some of the orange poppy seeds in the garden last autumn and hope that I get at least one. It won't seem like my garden until I've got some.

Another beauty!! Sorry I didn't get to meet you yesterday - didn't know who to look for!! I did hear someone saying they hadn't seen 'Brenda' yet so wasn't sure if she meant you or not!!! Enjoy your sprays! Embrace the vivid ink!

A beautiful, gentle seascape... I love the vivid lighthouse against the subtle palette of the rest.

From your message, I think you were at Stamperama yesterday, maybe? So was I!!

Hi Brenda another terrific card, I love your scenes! I also had stamps (& paper, punches etc) that I don't think I would ever use again that are going to good homes. It feels good to clear up space. Part of this hobby is collecting for the hobby! Take good care, Shirleyx

Tedz said...

Another lovely seascape Brenda. I tried out my PPs this weekend but I only have the pastel set and I couldn't really get the effect I wanted so I need to get some more of the darker colours but they are lovely to use. I hope you have a better week this week. Pauline xx

Hoping this week finds you feeling a bit better...You have been having a rought time of it...seems unfair...you've had enough...it should be someone else's turn by now!

Lovely card...it looks so serene and tranquil! I haven't ever used the pan pastels but they seem to give a lovely soft subtle colour, or it is just your expert colouring!
