I fell in love with her colours, and then I thought I'd try this new technique of swishing 2 or 3 ink pads on a non porus surface, and spritzing with water, and then smishing your card stock in it...letting it try and repeating if you so wish. ( Called Wrinkle Free Distress Technique)
Then I coloured the moon a little, and inked the birds a little more, and painted white on the waves with white acrylic paint. I punched out 2 crabs and added coloured sand, from Dollarama Store, and made 2 sand crabs...lol
added two shells with Beacon's Glue, and then made it into an easel card...
