Lighthouse Sympathy

I was asked to make a sympathy card for a man and I always struggle with that. It needed to be a larger card with room for multiple signatures, so that even made it more of a challenge... I finally decided to use this lighthouse stamp by Impression Obsession. I used my copic markers to color it. This was also the first time I have used my airbrush system. It didn't work as I wished it to on its maiden voyage, but for a worked nicely!

In the background, I used several different colors of paper, rice paper and mesh. I tore the edges to look like the ocean. I thought the end result was especially nice and I hope the recipient finds some solace in the card.

Copic Colors Used:

Bricks: R22, R24, R27, R29
Sand: E50, E51, E53, E55
Grass: YG91, YG93, YG95
