From Land To Sea Lighthouse

by Joanne James28. February 2016 21:17

I'm popping in with an extra post today to make up for my lack of one yesterday; my card was all ready, however by the time I returned from the swimming gala that the James Juniors were attending yesterday evening, I was truly good for nothing! This card is made with this week's CAS(E) This Sketch and the challenge over at CASology in mind:

   

I took a rather less obvious approach to the cue word 'distress' and instead of focusing on a technique went with the emotion - here's my card:

I went with a lighthouse - the beacon of safety for mariners in distress - from the 'From Land to Sea' stamp set as the focal image for my card and paired it with the sentiment from 'Best Thoughts', which seemed appropriate. I masked off a section of my card using post-it notes and using a sponge dauber and So Saffron ink, sponged in some light shining from the windows of the lighthouse too. I kept my card fairly monochromatic, apart from a splash of red on the lighthouse and a thin strip of retired patterned paper down the left side, and the beam of light. Some black and white baker's twine finishes my card.

Here's today's visual summary for easy reference:

 

That's all from me this evening; back tomorrow with another project. until then, happy stampin'!

What a great way to interpret "distress"!  Perfect!  Clean, simple and very effective with the shading!

Joanne, I love your take on the cue card this week at CASology -- I'm sure mariners in distress feel so much better when they see that lighthouse in the distance!  Beautiful card layout and coloring...and I love the rays of light emanating from the lighthouse!  Thanks for playing along with us this week at CASology!
