High Tide: Let hope be your lighthouse

Hello stampers!

I FINALLY had a chance to sit down and make a card a few days ago. I pulled out one of my must have sets from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue that is available starting January 4, 2017. Eeeeekkkkk... that's next week, super exciting!! The set I used is called {High Tide}, it's a stunning set of "beach" themed images and paired with some lovely sentiments. It has a photographic look to the lighthouse, which gets double stamped. It's no secret that I love the beach, it's one of my happy places (even in the winter)... so this set was perfect for me. 

I tried not to fuss too much playing for the first time. I thought the lighthouse image shines all on it's own, don't you? I kept it simple with only one ink colour, Crumb Cake. When you add the same colour on top, it actually makes it darker and appears like a deeper shade. 

I stamped the flying birds a couple of times, again in Crumb Cake. Then the sentiment with Crumb Cake in the center and Island Indigo on the top and bottom. I like how the two-toned look turned out. I hope you like my card, I'm sure you will see more creations with this beautiful stamp set soon!
