Beach Happy.......FMS378





Once that calendar flips to March I am ready for winter to be over.....so that's why there is a beach card here today!  I did a simple watercolor wash using Mint Macaron and an aquapainter to create  a backdrop for my ocean elements.  

Inspiration was right outside my back door.......good thing I can think in technicolor......





Amy's sketch is delightful this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Join us!




Stamp Sets:  Beach Happy. Sea of Textures

Fabulous card Linda! I can hear the ocean if I listen closely. The scene out my back door is similar and I love the idea of seeing a beach.

You are getting quite proficient with the old watercolors there, Miss Linda! That wash looks positively casual - something I struggle to achieve! Wonderful take on the sketch!

I am so done with winter. I feel the same way about March....but I get impatient that spring doesn't arrive fast enough! So that's why beachy scenes are so important right now! Love this! Your watercolor wash is amazing with these images. :)
