It's Your Birthday!

Well, did the new Sweet 'N Sassy release get you in the mood for summer??  It would be nice if we at least had some Spring weather here in Northern California!  I guess I'll have to settle for these beach scenes for a while longer!  I stamped the main image from Ocean Paradise with Versafine Onyx Black on white cardstock.  I placed a Post-It note at the horizon, masking the chair and beach.  I sponged on Adirondack Aqua and Sailboat Blue inks.  I then water colored the ocean with an aquabrush and the Sailboat Blue ink.  The sand was created by rubbing a Memento Sahara Sand dew drop ink pad directly onto the paper.  The umbrella is paper pieced with Echo Park Summer Days patterned paper.
Have a great day!!

Beautiful card Harriett, and ya, nice weather would be, well, nice. It's supposed to come next week. We should be in the 90s now! A tornado touched down in Sac yesterday even.
