Friends are Treasures

I started with the beautiful  Mojo Monday Sketch #240.I feel like I have been in a nautical mood for awhile...

I laid out the sketch and cut all the pieces using the beautiful Bo Bunny Country Garden collection.  The next step was to select a sentiment. I picked up the beautiful ODBD Faithful Friends for a sentiment to put on my banner. Then I was trying to think of something that provides shelter and the lighthouse from ODBD Keep My Lamp Burning  was sitting on my desk from another project and seemed like the perfect fit.  After I stamped it on my smaller circle I of course smudged black ink in the background on the circle.  No problem... just add some acrylic paint over the background to add a nice distressed touch. :)

Than the sketch with the banner covered up too much of my light house so I had to modify it slightly?  :)

Anyways, I am happy with the end result.  The Sketch:


Thanks for stopping by!
