D2D Let Your Light Shine


Faith over at D2D gave us a lighthouse to use this week as our free digital image.

  I used a combination of techniques to color the image- the water, shore, lighthouse and the yellow light are Copic markers, the clouds and sky are water colored. I added Creative Inspiration Paint over the white wash of the waves and the yellow light from the lighthouse.
  For the water, I scribbled multiple blue Copics over the bottom of the page and blended the colors together.  The sandy dune hill is brown Copics and I took a little colorless blender and dabbed it on a washcloth, and dabbed the dune. That gives the dune texture.

I left the card blank so I could add a sentiment later.
I hope you had a Blessed Easter.
Thanks for stopping by,
Shelly
