My Beacon

Today I have a vintage collage to show you from Create with TLC.  I love lighthouses and this collage comes complete with the sentiment.  I found this yummy design paper which echoes the nautical theme I created.  

card recipe:
TLC My Beacon Vintage Collage digi, Websters Pages design paper, Georgia Pacific and Bazzill cardstock,  Spellbinders die, raffia ribbon,  hand made sea shells, distress ink and Copic markers

The hardest part of making this card was deciding what to use to decorate my "rope".  I wanted seashells but had nothing in my stash that vaguely resembled a shell so... I created my own!  This is actually easy peasy.   I found some creme paper in my stash, ran it through a crimper and then cut out small circles.  I then trimmed the bottom and added distress ink for depth... instant shells!

I hope you enjoyed your visit today, I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support!

Pretty card. Isn't it great when you can think of a way to create what you want/need from supplies at hand(shells)?
