Hello Everyone! I'm so excited to bring you my first project as part of the Emerald Creek family! I had the privilege to meet the owner Kim in person at Creativation, which made me more excited then ever to create projects for her! The project I'm bringing you today is dedicated to my grandmother. She passed away in December after a hard battle with cancer. She loved lighthouses and the ocean and ships. They were her favorite things. You could find them in the decor of her house, in her closet, even in her jewelry, so when I was given the beautiful Lighthouse stamp designed by KMO Designs I knew I wanted it to be center stage on my first project.
I started by stamping the image with permanent ink. I let the ink cure well and then I painted it with all my favorite shimmery paint colors.
I added some heavy body acrylic paint to add highlights and some texture to my painted image.
Next up, a base to place my image on. I embossed a 4 1/4 X 51/2 inch piece of heavy watercolor paper ( I used hot press watercolor paper for the base of all my pieces) with Magical Mysteries- Mermaid Fin embossing powder. Once my embossing was done, I felt it was a little too dark so to lighten up the area around my image, I brushed on some more of the heavy body acrylic paint.
Now to assemble....
an assorted selection of Boho Blends stones and a Nautical Anchor Charms added the perfect finishing touches.
I attached this to an A4 card base...not so I could mail it, but so I could display it in my craft room to remind me of my grandmother.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I cant wait to continue to share all of my cardmaking and scrapbookingprojects using the gorgeous supplies from Emerald Creek!
Have A Lovely Day!
