Lighthouse

Happy Friday!

I had purchased a set of wooden coasters in a wooden box. I created several fun wall hangings using the wooden coasters. This particular one I used the Artistic Outpost Lighthouse from the Beyond the Sea set.


This took several layers and playing around to get this effect. :) Start with a base of Adirondack Acrylic Paint. Stamp the lighthouse Versafine black onyx. Color the image using watercolor pencils to color and re-draw the lines. Wet the watercolor with an aqua brush. When the colors are to your liking. Versamark the entire surface and heat emboss. Repeat a couple of times to give it a nice gloss. Stamp the Sentiment using StaZon Ink on the glossy surface. (If it doesn't work you can remove it using the StaZon cleaner)

Accent with twine, tulle and charms.

Hope you have a lovely Friday!

  1. Love this Sue, great home decor piece. The added pencil lines really look like it's hand drawn and not a stamp!
