CAS Watercolor June Challenge

Hi there,
A quick post to share a card I created for another one of my favorite challenges ~ CAS Watercolor - June Challenge for the theme 'Summer'.


Living on the coast affords me the luxury of a 45 minute drive to the beach whenever I like, so I thought I would share the view from my beach chair ~


I  used Peerless Watercolors for the sky and DI's to create the waves with a Hero Arts background stamp, then gave it a spritz with some shimmer spray. I pieced the boat to have white sails and backed it with foam to add dimension. A few sweet little seagulls and sea shells, and that was it!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

You are so lucky to live so close the beach Barb! I grew up on the beach, but now am pretty much as far away from it as you can get! haha! Your card is so pretty though! Makes me feel like I'm there! I'm really into nautical right now, so I'm loving it!!

Simply sweet and beautiful view from your beach chair, Barb. We live 45 minutes from the Southern Oregon Beaches too :-) TFS and joining us at CAS Watercolour. Hugs..

Beautiful card! The way you stamped the waves is so very cool. I live about 30 minutes from the beach and we never, ever go. Just never think about it, I guess.
