Water Colored Beach Scene for TPD Stamps

Good morning crafters!  Today, I'm sharing this lovely watercolored card using the brand spanking new stamp set from TPD Stamps, "Way To Go".  This is one of the newest sets in the June release and is perfect to celebrate those milestones; birthdays, graduation, etc.

To begin, I stamped my image, then used my Tombow dual brush markers to watercolor by swiping across an acrylic block, spritzing with water and grabbing the color with my Tim Holtz water brush to begin painting.  A little blotting with a paper towel, helps to get that "cloud" look for the sky. 

If you'll notice the picket fence stamp in the graphic further down, you might spot that I flipped it and used the bottom, flat end for my watercolored wood plank fence.  I love it when a stamp offers duality.  For my sea grass, I stamped first in brown, then again in white, using my Ranger Picket Fence dabber on my stamp.

Purchase "Way to Go", here.
