CPS Sketch 221

This week's CPS sketch is sponsored by Christian Paper Crafts.  The lighthouse has long been a symbol of the guidance of God through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, so I chose this image from Gina K's recently released set By the Sea, along with an image from Elegant Elements to symbolize the light of Christ.

The focal image was stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, then cut and embossed with Nestabilities classic circles.  I used my favorite cloud-making technique to sponge in the sky using a scalloped circle as a mask, and several colors of ink.

The elements of the layout were sponged with distress ink to soften the colors.  The decorative fiber was actually recycled from a couple of Life is Good tee shirt tags that I saved (along with the cool safety pins that come with them) to repurpose on cards.
