matching colors...

It’s not always easy to match the “exact” colors that a challenge calls for but you can give it a good ray.
The base card is white linen card stock.
I die cut a square stencil to allow me to stamped the Avery Elle “Shine Bright” lighthouse without corrupting the rest of the card front.
After coloring it on with Prisma pencils and Gamsol I used two dies from the MFT Die-namics set called “Inside & Outside Stitched Square STAX” to make a coral frame.
The verse is from the same set and all the stamping was done with Adirondack slate ink.


  1. A brilliant CAS card and a great design.
