Final Week - Let Your Light Shine!

Click here if you want to skip down to Mr. Linky.

It is the last week of our "Let Your Light Shine" challenge.  You still have time to get your project in for the random draw for a lighthouse stamp from Art Impressions.

I have two more email entries to include in the challenge.  The first one is from Mel. Lovely job Mel!

The second is another card from our friend Margaret in Yorkshire.

Margaret from Yorkshire here again.  This challenge has proved more difficult – however having only just bought Lindsay Mason’s Cliff Top Scene set of stamps, I couldn't let the challenge pass me by.

The inspiration for the card came from a very old song, sung by Conrad Veidt, called Where the Lighthouse Shines Across the Bay.  (Anyone who used to listen to Terry Wogan on BBC Radio 2 may well remember him playing this song on a regular basis, albeit a bit scratchy).   I have named my card Come Home my Love which is a line from the song.

Stamps used:
                From Lindsay Mason Cliff top Scene set:   Cliff top, Lighthouse,  Seagulls,  Fence, Grass. 
                From Butterfly Kisses Far Away set:  Maiden watching

I used a selection of Adirondack and Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the brayering  and a White Gel pen to add the foam of the waves.  The girl was stamped onto White shrink plastic and coloured before shrinking. As originally stamped, she stands almost as tall as the Lighthouse! The finishing touch was the fence stamped onto acetate and attached to the card to ground the girl.

We also have two beautiful lighthouse creations from the design team to share with you this week.

Brenda - Floral Fantasies

We only want to see finished stamped or digi scenes (no ATC's or unmounted work).  If you are not sure what constitutes a scenic project, check out the information here.
You may enter up to 3 times and as many challenges as you wish.  If you do not have a blog or account on Split Coast Stampers, then just email me a picture of the piece and I will add it to one of our posts.  
Don't forget to add GDT to your link if you wish to be considered for a guest spot.
Have fun creating!
