Sand Between Her Toes


Greetings! There's a new challenge over at Simon Says Monday Challenge and we are to create projects around an Ode to Sunshine.  I decided to work with the Boardwalk images from Artistic Outpost.  The background was made using various shades of Distress Paint.  The images were stamped with Timber Brown StazOn ink.  The sunbathers were watercolored with Distress Markers.  Seashells, a bit of burlap string and a metal seashell charm complete my card.
