Blog Candy Sketch - A Light unto My Path


Good Morning everyone.
Hope you all had a great weekend?

It was very hot here in Georgia and we hung out at the pool in the later afternoons.....plus we shopped till we dropped so to speak....didn't take very long in this heat - LOL!!!

I didn't get to stamp very much, but I've made this card last week for the *Blog Candy Sketch Request*.

This is Beate's WSC31 which was requested by Sandyh50 (no blog info) and by Jennifer L. *Created by Jen*.
For this card I have used the *A Light unto My Path* Set. I love this Set - it is so serene!!!
Here is a little trick on how I have been able to add some extra colors to the image. I have first stamped it with Blue Bayou - stroking the Ink Pad in one direction - love that look. Next I have taken a *baby wipe* and wrapped it around my finger and wiped off the area I wanted to add different colors to.
I have used a Chocolate Chip Marker next and colored in the light house. Then I have taken the River Rock Ink Pad and inked the bottom of this Set. Voila - that's it!!!
I have started out with a Whisper White CS. The image was trimmed around the edges and also placed on a Whisper White CS. Next I have raised these two layers up and added it to a larger Chocolate Chip CS.
The panel on the right hand side started with Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou and Whisper White. Then I have added Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets and *medium* Brads from MM.
The sentiment is from the *Hugs & Wishes* Set and it was inked in Chocolate Chip.
Sandy and Jennifer I hope you like what I have done??? Thanks for playing!!! I love this Sketch too!!!

Beautiful card Silke. I just got this set this week. Thanks for the inspiration. I live in GA too. What part of GA do you live. We havent had rain in over a month and it was 102 yesterday. Stifling hot.
