Greetings friends! The June kit is here and is loaded with nautical-themed images in time for summer. My mom is a huge lighthouse fan, so of course, I had to start with the lighthouse image.
To make the card, I first started with a light blue notecard and stamped it with the Rainbow Scales Cover a Card background in Navy ink.
Next, I stamped the lighthouse and compass onto 140lb watercolor paper using black Verafine ink. I then colored the scene using a combination of waterolor paints and watercolor pencils with a blender pen. Watercolor pencil work really well for tiny areas that need to be colored and larger areas such as the sky work better with watered-down watercolor paint.
To finish the card, I stamped my sentiment with the same Navy ink as the background design.
Here is a close up:

 These are all the images and coordinating sentiments that come in the limited edition June kit:

Lovely card. I appreciate the tips on using watercolor pencils for the small places and watered down watercolor paint for the larger areas.
