Beauty by the Sea...

Hello! It's Monika here today, bringing you an elegant beach card.

Couple of weeks ago, I made a beach card using a water color pastel technique. This time, the background was made using the acrylic block water color technique (there is a sweet tutorial HERE). I used blue and tan markers to color the block, spritzed water over it, then used the block as a stamp. You always get a different look with this technique and it is super easy.

Next I stamped the silhouette image from Landscape Silhouettes clear stamp set onto the background.  

To add dimension to the card, I die-cut a stitched circle out of the background and popped it up with dimensional tape.

 Then made the embellishments... I heat embossed some of the smaller images from Beauty of the Sea clear stamp set on Vellum with white embossing powder and cut the images out. There is also a coordinating die set: Beauty of the Sea die set.
Thank you for stopping by,
