I LOVE how the Pennant Row sentiment works with the seascape. I want to be there, NOW!!!

I stamped The Mighty Sea, and with a little masking, extended it to fit. Colored with Copics and white acrylic paint. I sponged the clouds using my cloud template then added some paint with my finger and added some shadow with Copics. The waves are also painted, and I used Mudd Puddles sand and shells at the bottom.

I stamped Butterfly Corner in Memento Slate Grey, colored with Copics and stamped the Butterfly Single, colored and hand cut to pop it up.

Audrey Ann said...

Dawn, You've already knocked my socks off - I don't need to go any further LOL!!! Your first card is all I needed - you have a way of taking this Might Sea and turning it into a painting every time. I've tried to do that and cannot even come close - I have no idea how to do it. I just can't get over how beautiful it is. But then there's your second card - oh my goodness it is also a beauty!! I love your vibrant colors and wonderful butterfly on this one - so stunning!!
Hugs and Blessings,
Audrey
