Lighthouse Tag

Today I've been messing about with the good old wax paper technique.... I used photographic card for my glossy card and it works real well.  Then I added Distress Oxides to see how they'd take to the gloss card - swiping it on doesn't blend very well so I smooched with the ink on a baby wipe, and used a stitched tag die to cut my shape.  Then I stamped the bottom half of my lighthouse stamp and then masked out the lighthouse and yacht and stamped the seagulls at the top.  Next I stamped the lighthouse and yacht on white card and coloured these with pencil and fussy cut them out and attached them to my tag.  To finish I used white gel pen to colour the seagulls.  I am playing along at Rubber Dance June challenge - basically using the colour palette and the tag option.  Also using my tag for the Simon Says Monday challenge - Anything but a card, and Southern Girls Challenge Team Lou - Anything Goes.     Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.
