Hanging Out Under the Palms

 
Hello!  This card looks very similar to one that I made before, but this time  I used watercolor paper  and distress inks to watercolor the scene which creates a totally different look.   I stamped the palm trees and hammock using a Flourishes stamp from Beach Life set.  The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers Island Life.   Inks used were Distress Inks Peeled Paint, Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, and Tea Dye, and Memento Toffee Crunch. I adhered the scene to a Blue CS from stash.

Your beach scene is looking mighty good, Theresa! We missed going to FL last winter, but hope to get back this coming one. Well done!
