The House That Stamps Built: Sketch Challenge

Wendy has a fun sketch this week at The House.
 
My card:
 

The sketch:
No photo description available.


I stamped part of Bass Harbor Light (lg) as I had a small area to work in,
pulled out my water colors and had fun. I cut my designer papers to match
the sketch, did some layering, stamped  Because and bordered it
with anchors I punched out of patterned paper glued to
cardstock for dimension.

Close up of watercoloring:

I love your water colouring and the design papers follow the theme well. I did try to link a card up to the last challenge but it wouldn’t work for some reason. Hugs Mrs A.
