Seashore

This week the Bloggers Challenge is the seashore. My card uses new stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs and a new technique, Watercolor Reinker, from the Technique Junkies current newsletter. The background colors are from distress reinkers.  The image is done on watercolor paper. The background panel is a wonderful textured cardstock from Club Scrap. Although the scan doesn't show it well, the crests of the waves and the moon have been highlighted using distress stickles. In real life, the water looks really sparkly and bubbly.
I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is anything goes and to the Stampendous Impressions challenge which is texture. (The background paper is a very textured paper and the stickles on the waves adds a texture in addition to the sparkle.)
