Beach Chair

Happy Wednesday, all! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Here is a card that I made using image from one of the newly released stamp sets by Purple Onion Designs.


Ahhh...... I wish I were the one sitting on that chair and enjoying a peaceful day at the beach. Sigh... =)


I stamped the chair from the Beach Chair Set with Black StazOn Ink on watercolor paper. The image is then colored with distress inks. I pressed the inks on an acrylic block and picked up the colors with a aqua brush. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.
