Agua Por Favor

Agua? Here's some Agua for you! Allison's challenge this week is to use water in the design of your card. First off I stamped the shells and masked them. I don't know if the picture brought this out enough but I used my new Moon Glows Moon Shadow Mist in Buccaneer Bay for the background. Then I brayered Tempting Turquoise to make the background very blue. Sponged creamy caramel for the sand spritzed it with water and salted it. That helped but really the dauber's shape didn't go away. Probably next time I would watercolor the sand then salt it. But it doesn't bother me enough to start over. I also painted some pearly white mica powder over the shells and that looks better in person. The matte is Basic Gray and the base is Confetti White. Oh yeah, and I embossed the saying with white ep.
