Thinking of You - Sea Side Treasures

Hi Everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  I hope you are all having a great start to your week.

I am still thinking about Spring and Sunshine and beaches and warm weather.... but, as it snowed this morning, I guess we aren't quite ready for it in Minnesota :-)

However, I did want to share a beach inspired card with you today.  I really do love this Sea Side Treasures set.  I love the realism of the images.  It was one of "those" stamp sets that I felt I had to have the minute that I saw it.

I started with a watercolor wash using a mop brush.  I wanted a fairly opaque background, so I didn't water it down too much.  I also added some Perfect Pearls to the water so that it gives a little shimmer to the water.

Once I had the background where I wanted it, I stamped the images using a darker blue.  I love the way the blues and the white play off each other.

Here's my card:

On a personal note:

As you have been enjoying my bird photos so much, I thought you might enjoy this one - I love it when the camera captures a bird in flight.  Take a look at the right hand side of the photo.

 The female goldfinch looks as though she is suspended in mid-air like a Christmas ornament on a tree!  I didn't realize I had captured it until I uploaded my photographs and reviewed them!  I love it when that happens.

As I am out of town on business, I might not get to do another post until Friday.  I will try and sneak one in on Thursday :-)  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
