Surf's Up!

If you arrived from Cammy's Blog you are in the right place,
if not why don't you start on the From The Heart Stamps,
so you don't miss anything.

Here's my project, using the Surf's Up Birdbrain image:


Here's a closer look:

Now you can see the glitter on the waves a little better... I have a huge container of all kinds of glittery stuff in my stash. I thought the white Doodlebug Sugarcoating
looked good on the wave foam.

 Also from my stash I used this blue watercolor background:
 
I spent one whole afternoon just playing with my paints making a total mess,
but I now have lots of samples in my stash to choose from.
I cut the front panel of my card from this big sheet because it reminded me of the ocean.

Now head over to Imke's Blog and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today.
The hop will end on Sunday Aug 7th at 6 am EST.
Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday Aug 10th.
 'til next time,
Doni
