Soak up some Sun

Recently I have enjoyed working with water color paints
and Distress Inks.
Here is a card I created using water coloring.

 I cut an oval with my Explore from watercolor paper and then stamped the image on a piece of post-it-tape and then cut around the chair and umbrella.
I placed my mask chair/umbrella on the oval then watercolored the background.
Then using my MISTI I lined up my stamp to the masked area and then stamped
the image.  I then decided to stamp and color the chair image
 again and cut it out so it would add more dimension. 
  I colored the chair and umbrella with 
Distress Inks and a water brush, then pop dotted it on top.  
Then cut the stitched oval using one of my Die-Namics dies.  The top shell banner is cut from Life's a Beach cartridge and the I
added some K&Company die cuts.  
The stamps are from Sweet & Sassy stamps. I had been wanting to
use these stamps for a long time and finally had an opportunity to 
use them.  

Thanks for stopping to take a peak.
