New Digistamps At Digistamps 4 Joy.

Today i would like to share my design team card I made with one of the new releases over at Digi Stamps 4 Joy. There are 12 gorgeous images I am sure you will love. I chose to use Lighthouse, living on the coast and from a navel family I know how important. They are to warn sailors of the dangerous of rocks and shallow shipping lanes. I love this image so much as it can be colored in so many different colors to change the use. By using just the light house and coloring in bright colors it would look like a helta skelta
Materials i used to make this sympathy card.
6" White card blank
The image is Lighthouse by DS4J
Decorative paper My Minds Eye in bloom collection
Promarkers warm grey 1 2 3 4 5.
Heartfelt sympathy sentiment i printed from my computer.
Slate grey card by American Crafts.
