IO Let's go to the Beach challenge

The challenge over at Impression Obsession's blog is "Let's go to the Beach". I like this challenge as I was raised in New Jersey on the mainland across the bay from a lighthouse. So here is my card....


I stamped the lighthouse image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen white paper.  Copics used:
Beach - E50, E51, G40
Boat - B23, C0
Water - B000
Lighthouse - C0, C4, E09, W1

The lighthouse and the sentiment are from IO's Clingables Lighthouse set 3017-XL.  There are 6 stamps, trimmed, mounted on cling and packaged in a great acrylic storage container.  I used my largest Spellbinders Labels Eight die and before removing it from the die, I stippled clouds into the sky.  Finished size is 4.5 x 6.25 inches.

You can take the girl out of Jersey but you can't take Jersey out of the girl. There's talent that comes from Jersey and you show it with every card.
