Lighthouse–From the Heart Stamps

I’m not sure what it is that draws me to Lighthouse images, maybe because when I was young I used to watch the Lighthouse from my bedroom window when I should have been sleeping blinking on and off guiding the sea vessels safely on their way or maybe because I lost a brother to the sea but I love them.

This Lighthouse digital Stamp by From the Heart Stamps is amongst my favourites, it also comes with a couple of sentiments too.

I used a pitt pastel pencil (chalk pencil) for the guiding light and I think it worked well.

It sure is really gorgeous coloring Jak, as it sure looks like the light is beaming out of there. It´s a really beautiful image and I can definitely see, why you love them and ofcause also from the other reasons as well, but the image itself is really beautiful, and with your perfect coloring, it gets perfect too.
