New Die.

     What could be better than the perfect sea gulls to add into a beach scene.  I was playing with some Twinkling H2O's, watercolors, and inks.  The background sort of just happened on this scrap of water color paper.  I also saw this stamp set sitting on my desk, as it had recently been borrowed by a friend.  Add in a few scraps of white card to make the seagulls, Viola!  The new die is from Impression Obsession, and they were fun to watercolor! The stamps are from Flourishes, and the set is called Beach Life.  I did distress my edges, and the card base is from SU!

     I think I will do a second entry over at Scrapy Land, for their Challenge #3 to use dies that they carry.

     I will also enter this over at Pixie's Snippets Playground #145, where it is all snippets, all the time.  Love that challenge!

     I am so lucky to also be able to add this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is to use water colors!

     Unless another challenge pops up today, that is it for me!  Have a wonderful hump day, and thanks for visiting!

Oooh, I love this scene Mary Anne! Although we're not to far from the sea here I do miss the days when I could walk down to the beach :) And thank you for your sweet words about the Playground - it really is such a happy place isn't it - and it's all down to you girls!

Mary Anne,
This is jaw dropping! I love everything about it. I'll have to keep that die in mind because they could be used in so many ways.
