Beyond the Sea

This card uses the stamp set Beyond the Sea. I just love this set, both the images and the sentiments included. I think this is a fantastic image of a lighthouse. The background of the card is done using the Acrylic Emboss technique from the current Technique Junkies newsletter. I used Adirondack acrylic paints in lettuce, stream, and denim. The embossing folder is from Sizzix. I thought the embossing resembled waves. The image is colored using the Pulled Glimmers technique from the June/July 2010 TJ newsletter. The shells and starfish are stamped and cut out. Then they were glued to a double ribbon attached to the card.
