All at sea over lighthouses

I love images of lighthouses.  I'm not sure why I have this fetish, but it is evident in the number of lighthouse stamps I have - both digital and in rubber. The image on the card below is one of the range of Michael Powell images from Urban Stamps.  I love his detailed stamps but they do pose a challenge when colouring with copics and trying to get some shading.  In this case I have trimmed the stamped image back to remove the background cityscape. The copics I have used are R22, 24, 27& 29 & B000, 00, 02, 05& 24 on the boats and lighthouse and some shading with the cool greys.  The stonework uses some of the warm greys and E25, 31, 33, 35, 47 &71.  The two ships wheel charms are actually from and old pair of earrings. I'm not sure of the origin of the papers but they were not branded.
