I got together with some fab crafty friends on Saturday and actually managed to produce a card. Usually I'm Miss Gabby and just enjoy the company with aspirations to finish something so I'm quite proud of myself--LOL.

Here I did a watercolor wash background using Zigs.  Super easy to do and dried quickly as I used a watercolor brush very lightly.  I emphasized the sand using tiny gold dotty washi and placed those cute flipflops like they are walking into the scene.  The banner I created using my new MFT Stitched Banner die.  Soooooo cute.

Oh!  Notice how "relax" appears in bold?  All you need to do is ink up your sentiment and press a bit harder when stamping where you want that effect.  This is using VersaFine.  I don't know if it works with other inks.  Let me know!

I'm entering this in Crafty Cardmakers #169 Summer, Fantasy Stampers #67 CAS, City Crafter #321 Typically Tropical
