12 tags of Christmas - Day { 4 }

Sharing tonight the 4th of the 12 tags of Christmas project.
I've got a special affection for everything lighthouse and have been looking for stamps that come with lighthouses' images in its variety. This lighthouse in the tag is one of my favorites in the collection ( I have only a few of them, still in the look out...).

I used the Perfect Pearls Powder to color the whole lighthouse and the waters then, added a bit of Glitz-glitter glue over the waves and lighting. Also put Liquid Glass (just slightly dabbing a small portion of it - with fingertip) to give an extra shiny effect.

Unfortunately the picture's not fair enough to show the actual pearlized result and embellished surface of the lighthouse itself.

For the edges I used the Brillance pearlescent ink (sky blue, beige), and the clear blue background that holds the Bible verse is a piece of dry embossed cardstock - love how this gave the rich texture to the tag base. To finish, 3 cute white shaped buttons were tied with a silver elastic cord and organza ribbon bow.

The featured Scripture:
"Thy WORD is a LAMP unto my FEET, and a LIGHT unto my PATH."
Psalms 119:105
