By The Sea Side

It must be Wednesday ~ I am back today with a beautiful stamp from Art Kure called Portland Bill.
I love how Crafter's Companion allows us to use great stamps and we get to  share with you.

 Now you know I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color this wonderful lighthouse. I live blocks away from Lake Michigan and we have a very similar area and it looks just like this...I knew I would be coloring  this image.This is the inside of the card
 This is the front of the card after I cut out the window with a Sizzix die and embossing folder...then I decided to add the Art-Kure EZMount™ Stamp -willow tree stamp~ you know how I love to fussy cut.

All I had to do was add this regal red ribbon from RRR, it just added a pop of color.
So that is what i have for you today, hope you enjoyed and I will see you back here next week same place and time.
