By the Sea


Happy 4th of July weekend!  I know a lot of people are traveling now, many to the beach.
I used a new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp set, By the Sea for this card.

I have been watching a lot of watercoloring videos, trying to improve my technique.  I also got a couple of new brushes which has made a big difference.
On this particular card, I used Ken Oliver Colorbursts to watercolor the scene.  I also used it for the 'splattery' background.  The sentiment is from the same set.  I just love the font on it. I die cut a frame around the image panel and popped the scalloped frame up on dimensional adhesive.
I was inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches~

I am also linking up to Crafty Friends where the challenge is 'Things Beginning with 'B'. (Beach, Blue)
Lastly, I am linking up to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Make your Own Background.  

And don't forget, this month's The Rainbow Card Challenge  color is BLUE!  Hope you can join us for or monochromatic challenge! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Your visits and comments are so appreciated!

  1. Great watercoloring Lee Ann. I love those colorbursts, they make awesome backgrounds.

  2. This is a beautiful card! I actually sighed when I saw this-- a peaceful "I want to be there" type of sigh. This is refreshing and lovely and was such a treat to see. You did amazing things with the color-blending and I'm so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
