WT163 Light of the World

In today's "Ways to use it" Challenge it called for us to use - snip snip - scissors!!!

I use my scissors a lot to cut out images that I like to raise onto my images for the 3-D look....and that's exactly what I have done for this challenge too!!!

For this card I have chosen to use my "Our Daily Bread Designs" Set called "Light of the World"!!!
This Bible Verse Stamp Set is so beautiful and this company just came out with two more Sets....and I'll buy them soon!!!

Anyway - my card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and I started out with a Transparency Sheet. Nest I have pierced the Whisper White CS and layered it on a Blue Bayou CS. These two CS's were placed behind the front side of the TS card and I have fastened them with Antique Brads.

For the main image I have stamped the lighthouse with Black Stazon twice and cut the second lighthouse out. The I started coloring the image with Yoyo Yellow Ink, Glorious Green and Going Gray Markers. I have also used the YG91 Puffy (matches the River Rock) and B34 Manganese Blue Copic Markers. I played around with the Copic Blender Pen as well to soften some areas.

I have bought my Copic's at an Artist Store in Savannah just to see if I like them and they have a wonderful selection too - just in case someone from this area is reading this and wants to try them.....

After I have colored the the lighthouse I have raised it with Stampin Dimensionals and centered it on top of the first. The Whisper White CS was layered onto River Rock and then I have added the Antique Jumbo Eyelets and the sentiment from this set. I have also raised this panel with Stampin Dimensionals!!! ~TFL~
