I stamped the image on water color paper and used my heat tool to ensure the ink was completely dry. Then, I used my Tombow markers, but I didn't color directly on the paper. Instead, I laid down some ink on my acrylic block, then used a brush that I had dipped in water. I pinched off the excess water and applied the color. The result is this beautiful water color image. I think the water color medium works really well with the image. I stamped the image again with a bright pink color and adhered the water color image on top, leaving only the sentiment to show. I added the brads and a few little banners before affixing it to the card base, which I embossed to create a wave-like effect.
The sentiment reads "Wiggle your toes in the sand by the Sea, dream of tomorrow and all that can be.
"Aaaaah! Don't you just want to do that right now!?!
