Twilight

This is my second post for today, for my SOUS post, scroll down or click HERE

When you think of "twilight" what do you think of?  I think of dust and that saying "star light, star bright."  I love twilight, it is such a magical time of day!  But maybe you think of Edward and Bella perhaps?  Or a certain set of colors?  Maybe fireflies?  Whatever it is, I hope you will come join us over at this week's Cut-it-Up Challenge where the theme is Twilight and was chosen by yours truly. :) 

Here is my creation for this challenge.



I used my faux watercolor tissue paper technique for the skyline.  Once dried I applied the stars using some embossing paste with my Simon Says Stamp falling stars stencil.  I simply tore the rock outcropping from some kraft paper and added SU! brown ink brushed accros to make it look like a cliff.  Next I stamped and die cut my Lawn Fawn lighthouse from the Life is Good set (LOVE THIS SET).  I colored it using some colored pencils.  Before mounting it I cut some beams of light from bright yellow paper using my paper cutter, once glued down I mounted my lighthouse on top of it with dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped my sentiment.  

So.....won't you check out the other amazing creations over at the Cut-it-Up Challenge blog?  While you are there you can check out the rules and timeline and then get to creating!  If you are chosen as the winner for this round of the challenge you will get a $10 gift certificate to Kadoodle Bug Designs!  

Thanks for visiting today!

What? Your birthday was yesterday? Belated Happy Birthday, my friend, and I hope your day was filled with celebration, family, friends and especially love! May that be true for the year to come, as well! Your twilight-themed card: spectacular! I've never seen a lighthouse in real life, and your cards featuring them have certainly sparked a desire to do so! One of these days...
