My Paradise is definitely walking on a sandy beach at sunrise (especially after SNOW and Sub-zero temperatures).   I bought this stamp last summer and haven’t figured out how to use it.  I played around with watercolors but it doesn’t stamp well on textured watercolor paper, although I was more successful at blending colors watercoloring with distress inks.  This card was colored with  colored pencils.

Stamps:  Beach scene (Technique Junkie), Sentiment (Darcie),  Striped background (SSS)

Die:  Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3.

Colored pencils:  Prismacolor

Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento),  Fine Linen (PapertreyInk)

Cardstock:  Blueberry Sky (Papertrey Ink), Neenah Solar White 80 lb.

    I really love how your card turned out! I think the watercolor look of the image is just perfect and I like how you can see it all through a window! You did an amazing job with the colors and it made me long for the beach. Very clever composition and lovely colors. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
