This week's theme at the Craft Barn is Light and I thought of this beautiful lighthouse stamp (Cape Lookout Lighthouse by Impression Obsession). I worked on a placemat which is part of a series,  so I followed the same colour scheme but this time I used a Clean and simple design to let the Light shine...

After stamping the lighthouse  I saw Turner-esque sky and atmosphere. OK Turner wouldn't have painted his sky green but I was seeing past the actual hue... Well I couldn't bring myself to detract from that impression, so I tentatively stamped in white pigment ink the water splash, then the quote (both from KTZ135 set by Katzelkraft) leaving an awful lot of white space (again green but you know what I mean...).
I do hope you get the strong sense of light that I do when looking at this picture.

Thanks for coming by,

  1. This is so very good! I see exactly what you mean about the Turner-esque light, I love this one.

  3. C'est super joli!!!
    Contente de revenir un peu sur ton blog, tant pis je prends le temps, ça me fait plaisir et puis j'aime découvrir ce que tu as encore imaginé de nouveau à partir d'une technique particulière comme souvent... Je vais voir ce que j'ai manqué de tes derniers posts!.. Bises

  4. Super Christine, I always think blue and green works so well together despite that old fashioned saying which suggests otherwise.

  5. sometimes a lot of "white" space is ok, like here, it emphasizes the light from the lighthouse even more.

  6. Oh wow, this is so lovely! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.

  7. I do indeed get the sense of light - just love the glow from the lighthouse you have achieved. A fabulous altered placemat.
