B is for Beach and Beautiful Blue Waters : SSS Monday Challenge

While the snow piled up outside is beginning to melt and the temperatures have been teasing us with signs of spring, I am still dreaming of a tropical escape to the warmth surrounded by beach and blue waters.  Since I cannot fly away right now, I decided to escape to the studio and create my own version of paradise.

The Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is B is for.... For me B is for Beach and my favorite color Blue.  Here's my entry in this week's challenge:

The background was created with Tim Holtz's Stripes layering stencil, using the layering stencil mono print technique.  I colored some texture past and added drops  to the edges to simulate the bubbles.  The starfish was stamped, cut out and colored with distress ink (watercolor technique).  And I chose one of my favorite sentiments from Tim's line.

I love the feel of this card-close my eyes and I can hear the ocean!
