Inspired by a card from another talented cardmaker who didn't put a watermark on her card so I cannot give her credit but it inspired me to make my own watercolor card using this set. This was my favorite stamp set from the Occasions catalog and if you know me, that makes complete sense as I am all about anything beachy or nautical. Unfortunately I didn't get too much time to play with this set but I will be hanging onto it for my own personal stash! To create the frame look, I too a piece of washi tape and masked off the edge of the watercolor paper. I then embossed the palm treetops using gold embossing powder. The trunks were stamped in Soft Suede. I then took the inks and an aqua painter to do a wash on the watercolor paper.
