A blue lighthouse for Uncle Derek


Just a quickie visit to blogland tonight, I'm watching the Bake Off on telly and need to make a cuppa and try to find something 'nice' in the cupboard ;)  Our lad Andrew is doing really well!

I would LOVE to live in a lighthouse, all that wild weather would be fab!  Don't know how happy my knees would be with all those stairs, so now I think of it maybe an overnight stay would be enough!

Image result for blue lighthouseI'm not so sure if this card works or not ... I thought I'd go for a monochrome look with this card, but I think maybe it would have been better if I'd just painted my lighthouse the traditional red
.  I did google it and you do get blue lighthouses!
Coloured with watercolour pencils; clear gloss added to the windows and the blue strips on the lighthouse covered with my clear glitter pen.
Stamp from Eat Cake Graphics: 6025-O Lighthouse

  7. Love this card, Lynne! We were in Ireland in 2004 and stayed three nights at Wicklow Head Lighthouse. We LOVED it. Even the stairs. It was so much fun to be able to sit in each window and look out at the gorgeous sea or the beautiful countryside. Definitely one of my favorite memories from that trip.
