Light house sympathy card

I've no sympathy cards in my stash, and thought this image from Eat Cake Graphics would make a nice one.

I've used 6025-O Light house and coloured it with my watercolour pencils. I chalked my sky and waves in the background. Then I added clear gloss to the windows and some Wink of Stella to the little flag and to the waves round the rocks. Dienamics embroidered frame die.

This card is also posted over at A Sprinkling of Samples and Techniques blog, where you'll find lots more loveliness from Eat Cake Graphics

Day 17 for the Daily Marker colouring challenge
