I wanted to share a little more info about my card for the hop. I had a lot of fun with this one. In theory it was pretty easy, but I love the impact of the water colored background and the pop of the Eyelet Outlet Brads.
I watercolored the background on Bristol smooth card using a basic watercolor palette and a water brush from Arteza. I also used glossy accents for the sun, girls glasses and the water to just add some dimension. I popped up the watercolor background with lots of foam tap to allow the brads to pierce through and not make the paper warp.
I used the Stamp set Sending Waves from Pink and Main and Flip Flop brads, Sand Castle brads, Bucket and Shovel brads from Eyelet Outlet.
