Hey there!  

I'm sneaking in at the last minute with a card for the Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge.  I added some yellow ink to some texture paste to create the stenciled background and it stands out beautifully against the turquoise card base.  The lighthouse was die cut and popped up on foam tape for some dimension.  Pretty simple but the texture and height add a lot of interest and I'm trying to use more coloured card bases these days.

That's it for now.  Have a good night!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Basic Grey, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Word Up) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko, (Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Lighthouse) Paper Smooches
Stencil:  (Sketched Lines) Altenew
Embossing Paste:  Dreamweaver Stencils
Gems:  Recollections

This is fabulous, Jen! That rich, BB cardstock just makes me happy. LOVE the stenciling, as it looks like the light shining out from your lighthouse. Truly wonderful card!! Have a great week. Bev

The lighthouse alone is awesome, Jen... but the addition of the embossing paste is pure genius!
