High Tide Birthday - a Framed card

My son is always advising me to frame my cards and have a gallery of them on the wall down the stairs to my craft room.
Today I did frame a card, but not because he was urging me to do this.  I did it because the finished card just looked like it needed it.


The Light house was stamped with Smoky Slate and Basic Gray.  A blender pen was used to colour in the red portion and then with Basic Gray ink to touch up the sides and the architecture at the top. The sand around the light house was stamped in Sahara Sand, with Old Olive Sea Grass growing around the base. The beacon lights are Daffodil Delight. After the sea was stamped, the horizon was darkened with a blender pen.

The sky was first washed with an aqua painter finishing up with clouds sponged over a trio of scallop circles.

Basic Gray ink was used to stamp the Sea Gulls.

Next to the Light House on a patch of sand there are two Sand Pipers.

The sentiment is from "Remembering Your Birthday.

This art piece was adhered to some By the Shore DSP and placed in an old off white frame

On a separate piece of Whisper White the wheel and lantern from the set "From Land to Sea" were stamped, coloured and cut out, then mounted on the right lower frame.

The finish, some neutral rope was tied into a sailor's knot and placed on the left side of the frame.
