CAS Mix UP: Watercolor + Beach

Make My Monday: CAS

Allsorts: Make it Masculine

I had seen a photo of some reeds on the dunes near the beach and decided to give it a go. The Paper Vellum got blue sky with water color. While that dried I accordion folded some tissue paper. Slightly opened and glued to lower half. I stamped in black and three shades of yellow the reeds and sentiment in black on another piece of tissue paper which was glued on. Added blue shadows with water color to valley of the tissue paper dunes and white to the mountain portions. Needed to add the hills in the bg with more white water color. Smeared a little gray ink pad with sponge for shadows in the reeds. Die cut the front panel and attached all to a white cs base.
