ColorThrowdown #450 Using Avery Elle Shine Bright Stamp Set

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you all had a great 4th of July!

Today I have my submission to the Color Throwdown Challenge #450
The colors for the challenge are Red, White, Yellow and White.

I used one of my favorite stamp sets, the Avery Elle Shine Bright set, to make this card.

I stamped and heat embossed the light house with clear embossing powder. 

I then watercolored it with distress inks. I used Candied Apple, Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, and Black Soot.

I then used some Bristol Smooth Card Stock and ink blended Tumbled Glass for the sky and Salty Ocean for the water. I used Broken China Distress Oxide to stamp the waves. 

I used Tea Dye to do a wash of color onto some water color paper. I just free hand cut out to make the sandy area. 

I used the stitched rectangle die from my beloved MFT Blueprint 13 Die-namics to cut out the sand and the background piece. 

There is a light shining stamp in the kit but i instead smoothed the Squeezed Lemonade onto some paper and then freehand cut it out like the stamp is but bigger. I then used some Wink of Stella onto the light to add some sparkle.

I used the clouds that came in the die set but I thought were too plain. I used the Marvy Snow pen to literally make those clouds puffy. this was my first time using it and man I was not disappointed!

As always, thank you so much for coming by and I will see you next time!
