I was asked to make a thank you card and this is one of the options. I used a large stampscapes beach stamp and colored, sponged, blended, and used white gel pen for the water splashes. I think the card is pretty but, more masculine than what i was going for.
I used random papers, either recess, stampin up and others from my scrap bin, and stampin up, adirondack, gel pens, and prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits to help blend everything. Also used stampin sponges for layering the first layers of blues on to the paper to help build up the waves.
Hope you like.

thanks everyone! This is the first time i used this stampscapes stamp and was so scared that the waves wouldn't look real enough. The person who recieved the card absolutely loved it! One thing i would change is i would have put it on glossy photo paper as the ink would have blended better, but live and learn right?
