Summer Scene at the Beach

Hello!  My birthday card today has Watercoloring with Distress Oxide Inks, a Button,  Embossing, and a nautical theme with a sailboat.  I pulled out an old stamp from my files and stamped with Versamark ink on watercolor paper, heat embossed with black EP, and colored the scene with a water brush. I trimmed the beach-side scene and placed on a mat of Blue CS and a card base of  GKD Tan Leather CS.  Finished with a Seagull Button that was part of a collection of ocean theme buttons that I bought several years ago on Sanibel Island.  Cut off the shank before attaching to the finished card. Distress Oxide inks used were Salty Ocean, Broken China, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen. Walnut Stain, Abandoned Coral, and Peeled Paint.
