This week our destination is Beaufort, South Carolina. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending them to a fellow teapotter, Robin (RJP111). Robin lost her husband in an accident. She some day hopes to live in a condo on the beach. I tried to include the beach, and seagulls into my card but no yellow mustang. Hope Robin likes it anyway.
I paper pieced the umbrella with old paper scraps I had.
My husband bought me an airbrush kit/compressor for Christmas and I am still trying to get used to using it. I used bashful blue acrylic paint to paint the sky, but I had printed out an extra beach scene image and cut it out, along with the cloud so that I could spray only the sky. lol A little time consuming but all in all it was a fun experience.

This is a cute scene. I wish I was right there now! I like your paper piecing on the umbrella and the little camera is a cute addition. I like the fibers. It gives it a beach feel even more. This is an adorable card and I'm sure it will bring some smiles to Robin.
