MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 259

Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Fox  and Friends Challenge 259
- use only the center of your top layer -

Here's my sample card as a design team member for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!

Here's my sample for Mark's Finest Papers design team.

After using an embossing folder I stamped my lighthouse image. I cut out a lighthouse to use as a mask and then masked out a rectangle and a horizon line, covering the "sky". Using daubers (sponges will work too) I added the blue ink for the water. Removing the horizon mask from the "sky" I then covered the "water" and used yellow ink for around the lighthouse beacon, then gray ink for the sky. I removed all masks and then colored my lighthouse with Copic markers. I hadn't intended to add a sentiment but one of my markers decided to drip and a sentiment was then needed to cover the spot. lol Whatever works, I guess. I used all Memento Inks.

I used MFP stamp set "Lighthouses".
