Watercolor Palm tree

I created this card for a challenge over at Mountain Plains Crafters but wanted to feature it here in more detail on my blog.

It's all free-hand except for the sentiment which is from the Unity Stamp Co kit called Bunches of Love, one of my favorite kits designed by the fabulous Lisa Arana!

I drew my tree with distress markers, then  watercolored, also using Twinkling H20's shimmering Summer Fun colors paint.  The paper on the side is a cork board design by Karen Foster Designs and enhanced with burlap trim.  I love how summery and colorful this is.

Go check out all the other nautical/beach inspiration at the MPC link above and link up to our challenge.  There's a prize up for grabs!
