Light

Here is Light of Life and Sweet Friendship, I guess I’m ‘into’ rusty or patina! Both the frame and lantern image are colored with Copics. DP is Basic Grey and Prima, Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio sponged with ink while in the die. I used several Copics and ruler on the two cut edges of the base piece so it would match the other sides as this card is 5x5.

Light clsup

I’m sure you’ve enjoyed the hop so far… now it’s time to hop to Angie’s fabulous creation!!

Thanks for stopping!
