Sun & Surf

I thought I'd play along with the current Just Us Girls Photo Challenge #638:
Such a fun image and that inspired me to create a beach themed card.
This gorgeous stencil is from A Colorful Life Designs called Sun & Surf.
Don't you just love this stencil? Clean and Simple in its own way.
The Sun & Surf Stencil is ink blended with blues and yellows from my Distress Ink stash.
The young lady standing in the sand is from Newton's Nook Designs - Summer Moments:
The images are stamped on Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink. I sprinkled Altenew's Crisp Clear Embossing Powder on the black stamped lines while still wet and finally heat embossed. For water coloring I used Daniel Smith's 238 Dot Card Set. Then finally used my favorite for any stamp set - the coordinating dies!
The "sand" is WOW  Sparkling Sand Embossing powder by Jo Firth-Young. I tried to capture how sparkly it is in this picture. Really looks like she is standing in sand.
The sentiment is from the same Summer Moments stamp set.
