Lighthouse Scene

Hello card makers!  Barbara Campbell back today with another beach inspired card for you.  If you saw my card last week, you may have notice that I cut some  dies and I didn't use.  Well, here they are for you now.
This is another layered die from Elizabeth Craft.  See the solid layer and the outline?  I actually colored it after gluing it together.  That way I could do some shading to make the lighthouse look curved.

I used some water colors on the sky and the water, using the brush to make the waves.  Next I tore another piece for the sand beach and also used the water colors for some texture.
Take a close look at the rock near the lighthouse, they are mushroom tops colored and shaded.  I think they make a great rock.  Then I just added the Shoreline Cattails and the sentiment to complete the scene. The sentiment is from Power Poppy Good thinking.  

 Here are the other dies that I used on this card. 

Have some fun with your stamps and dies, I hope that I have inspired you today.
