Tiddly Inks Challenge #1

Happy Saturday Everyone!! I'm SO excited to be here to show off my first Tiddly Inks card using their GORGEOUS lighthouse image playing along with their very first CHALLENGE!!!
I grabbed this image for FREE on the TI's PCP page!! Thanks gals for the awesome freebie!!!
As you can see, I really wanted to focus on the image so I kept my card simple and neat. I colored my image using my Copics, Sakura gel pens and Souffle pens. I used Diamond Glaze for all of the "glass" windows and I paper pieced and popped up the roof of the lighthouse, the main roof on the house and the rowboat.

My sentiment 'always' is inked in Momento Ink in Tuxedo Black. My image is printed on PTI Ivory Cardstock and layered twice with red and brown cardstock. The red gingham is SU! DP from a few catalogs ago and my base is PTI brown cardstock. The ribbon is from Michael's.
Thank you again TI for the great free image!! I'm so excited to start shopping with you!!
I hope you have enjoyed my creation!!

XOXO-
