Kraft Journal 179

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Halfway through the week!!!  I got out my aquapainter and reinkers to make my little card today!  The Kraft Journal has a Sea and Sand challenge this week, and I had totally forgotten about this sweet little image of beach children when I was doing our beachy-themed card for the Paper Players, so I inked it up for the Kraft Journal:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Beach Babies Stampin Papertrey

I wanted to make it into a postcard-style image, but it always bothers me that the post card words are on the wrong side of the post card---they should be on the back, right?!  Anyway, I had went with it….I had so much fun painting these little bathing beauties, and making an ocean scene is about the only scenery I can do….I even added a little shimmer to the ocean with some shimmer paint:


and then I added the postal images and a couple of sentiments:


and mounted it on a Crumb Cake card base!  I added a little birthday sentiment on the inside too!  Thanks for visiting today!
