Dazzling Scene

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!

Ready for a new challenge at Add a Little Dazzle?  We have a new style of challenge for you- the very trendy and popular mood board!   Here is my take on this month's mood board~

And here is your mood board!

I started with a couple of my favorite Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, Keep My Lamp Burning and The Mighty Sea.  The lighthouse is a collage style stamp, so I masked much of the background and just stamped the lighthouse on the cs.  I then repeated that and stamped the lighthouse in Stazon ink on the Scarlet Red Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal sheet.  I fussy cut out the bottom 3/4ths of the lighthouse.
I masked the 'beachy' portion of the Mighty Sea image and stamped the water in both Basic Gray and Buckaroo Blue ink onto the cs (with the lighthouse masked off).  I was trying to give the water a cold, wintry look.  With Basic Gray ink, I sponged in the winter sky.
The Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal lighthouse was adhered to the cs using Scor-tape.  I used white acrylic paint on the waves.  Once that was dry, I added some Crystal Effects to the waves and then sprinkled with glitter.  I also used the Crystal Effects around the railing of the lighthouse, trying to create icicles.  I sprinkled this with glitter as well, although you cannot see it in the photo. 
The final wintry touch was adding falling snow by splattering watered down white acrylic paint over the scene.  After an initial spatter of paint, I stamped the sentiment.  Then a second layer of spattered paint was applied.  Finally I added the snowbank, die cut using Simon Says Stamp's Stitched Slopes and Hills.
