Long Island Lighthouse

I live on Long Island, where there are over 20 historic lighthouses. When I saw the Uncharted Territory stamp set I knew I had to have it.  Here is a link I found interesting, which lists all the lighthouses on Long Island. I think this stamp closely resembles the lighthouse in Eatons Neck.

This card will be for my husband's birthday. However, this set is suitable for so many occasions. I think the sentiment makes it perfect for a graduation card. It would also be a great Father's Day card. I know I will get a lot of use out of this set.

The image was stamped on watercolor paper with Stazon ink, which will not run when wet. It was colored using stamp pads and an Aqua Painter, a tool which can make an artist out of anyone!
