Beachy Colors

The current challenge at Impression Obsession is A Day at the Beach.  I don't have beach themed stamps, per se, so I'm using beachy colors of blue & tan Tattered Angels mists with the IO Infinite Beauty (C5159) stamp.  
I began by clear embossing the quote stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate.  I tore painter's tape & covered 1/2 the square of watercolor paper at a time & spritzed with several tan & blue mists.  For even more shimmer, the entire panel was sprayed with Perfect Pearls--wish I could capture it in a photo. Thought the IO Three Little Twigs (E8829) could work as beach grass, so stamped it in VersaMagic Gingerbread on all 4 sides of the kraft card front.  My design was inspired by Twofers Challenge to make a stamped sentiment the focus.  Since I made a square card, I'm also entering SSS Wednesday. We're so happy Oregon temps are coming back & hopefully it will help with fighting the wildfires. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  7. This is a lovely beach scene. It has sand and water and beach grass. What more do you need? Well, maybe an umbrella drink! I wish things would settle down here. We had a destructive storm yesterday morning, a flooding storm last night and this morning one is brewing up by Lafayette. This after the tornados in Kokomo. Whew, I'll be glad when things get back to normal here.
