SOTM Blog Hop - Illuminate and Let your Light Shine Through

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring Novembers SOTM, which is Illuminate, a set of 15 stamps.  If you have come here from Pam's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here

This month we have approximately 54 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I started by stamping out the lamp-post and lantern.  To do the lantern, I actually started with the 2 tones of yellow for the light.  I used Buttercup and Honey.  I used a combination of stamping and shading with Alcohol Markers.  Then using Black Ink I stamped over the light.  I then fussy cut out the image.  Using my Art Philosophy cartridge, I cut out this oval, and using my Buttercup Alcohol Marker made these rays of light come shining out from behind the lantern. Using tombow, I adhered this oval onto a piece of Sarita,which I really like the effect as it looks like the light is breaking through the darkness.  This is all mounted on a Goldrush Cardstock.  The lamp-post and lantern are popped using 3D foam tape.  The sentiment fits perfectly and is stamped in Black Ink.
