Peggy's Cove?


Does anyone know if this lighthouse (from the retired SU set Coast to Coast), is Peggy's Cove? It looks to me that it may be....so that is what helped me to determine how I wanted to color this.

I stamped the image on a wonderful Fabriano Medioevalis 5" square card from Starlit Studio with my Jet Black StazOn ink. Instead of using my re-inkers, I just grabbed my Stampin' Write markers and scribbled the colors I needed to use, on a non porus surface. Then I used my Aqua Painter to pick up the color, and apply as needed.

I'm feeling a bit under the weather, so I will leave you with the recipe. Have a great day, and thanks for visiting!

Stamps: Coast to Coast, Butterfly Kisses (PaperTrey Ink)
Card Stock: Fabriano Madioevalis
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, various Stampin' Write markers, Spika pens (for sparkle), Sakura Pens--Black Glaze & White Soufflé
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Bashful Blue Taffeta ribbon

I am not familiar with Peggy's cove but looked it up on Wikipedia and I am now convinced it is the very same!

Hope you're feeling better soon! I would think it is the one and only as it is the most famous in Nova Scotia. What a great card! I love the ribbon you chose too!

What a wonderful job you did on this card. Just lovely. It is indeed Peggy's Cove. There are many lighthouses here in Nova Scotia........but none as photographed as this one.
