Barnegat Light photoscape

I grew up in Barnegat, New Jersey, across the bay from Barnegat Light. I love this lighthouse and have made the climb to the top many times.

Using a photo of a sky over my home in Michigan, I printed it onto glossy paper from the Paper Cut. After heat setting the ink, I stamped my images using Marvy Matchables black ink.

The lighthouse is from Stampendous, I did not ink up the foliage on the bottom of the stamp or the clouds around it. The rest of the stamps are from Stampscapes. I heat set it again. I then added color with my Tombow markers and used a white gel pen on the base of the lighthouse.

I have not been home to NJ in years and really miss this sight.
