It's Teapot Tuesday again, the day I look forward to all week long. This week we were to either do a beach scene or a guitar theme. I had Flourishes Beach Life on my desk so it was a natural. I stamped the palm tress and masked then stamped the sea scene coloured it in copics, added some surf with white gel pen and stickles. The shell border is a MS punch watercoloured and the flip flops are part of the Flourishes beach stamp set.
If I'm proud of one thing on this card it's the ridiculously tiny little green bows on the flip flops. I tied them around meat skewers.

Could you edit the card and paint me in it somewhere?! Just kidding - but I wish I were there right this minute! Your scene is beautiful, Elizabeth - you did an amazing job making that water look so alive! Love your sea shell border - and those awesome and adorable flip flops. The flip flops are just too cute - with their tiny little meat skewered bows! So cute. Awesome card and amazing coloring.
I can so see myself in this scene, kicking off my gorgeous flip flops and flopping in the hammock with the sparkly sea at my feet. Closing my eyes and putting myself in your card. Thank you for the beautiful moment.
