DS4J challenge nr 96 For the Boys!

It's my happy turn to host the current Digistamps4Joy challenge and this time it's


I know Father's Day was a short while back but I just love making cards for guys (young and old). I think there could be a lot of fun in them!

I used the gorgeous LIGHTHOUSE from DS4J and used Derwent watercolour pencils to colour it and then lightly waterwashed it.
Once again I kept it clean & simple within a reverse die-cut frame.

Sentiment: Unity Kit of the Month Spirit of Summertime

Please join us at Digistamps4Joy and make something for the guys.
