In honor of the end of summer I chose to do something summery and tropical.  Inspired by what remind me of post card images.

I used the Altered Pages Travel/Transportation Digital Sheets specifically the states.  I printed out the Palm Tree image and inked it up with Tea Dye Distress ink.  Then stamped the Bombshell Hawaiian Girl stamp on watercolor paper and water colored her with my pencils inking the edges with more Tea Dye.  With the focal images done and mounted on cardstock I cut out a couple of Memory Box Border Dies Big Splash and Sandal Bordes.  Then I dug around in my embellishment drawers and found the sequins, day dreamer acrylic and arrow.  I wrote the word Splash on some cardstock and went over it glaze pen adding more bubbles/water spray with the glaze pen.  

Hope you enjoy the Hop with all of the Amazing Artists Thanks for stopping by!  Have a Great Day!
