Lighthouse by Night

Oh is this image gorgeous! I love the sketchy look of it and enjoyed using it for this card so much! I think it looks like a painting! It's from KLM Designs and you can see it and all of her wonderful images here. I printed it out twice and used one as a mask so I could sponge the background. I wanted to do a night scene with it and thought the dark blue sky with the lighthouse light would be cool. I'd never done a night scene so I was completely winging it hehe. I colored the house and trees with dark colors then went over all of it with a gray. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I'm also using this card for this week's Midnight Madness challenge and Digital Tuesday Challenge. Hope you like it too~
