This was so easy to make, I ended up making a bunch and I have one left! This card size fits in the small open end envelope. I started with shimmery C/S and stamped the birds then I used the aqua painter direct to watercolor crayons and filled in the sand, darker under each bird with Blush and Mustard and Apricot. I then filled in the ocean direct to crayon using several blues but mainly Not Quite Navy . I used Bordering Blue and a little Bashful Blue for the sky using a very light hand with a touch of plum. I colored the birds using some Gray and Sahara and then stamped the saying. The waves were easy peasy using the white gel pen to scribble in the braking tops and froth on the sand. The shells were stamped and watercolored and cut out to add with the clip. The layers are blue and mustard vellum on Sahara Sand background card. Try it!
