inky paws challenge - beach paradise

ahhhh yes! 
just the mention of a beach paradise and i think waves, sun, relaxation and heaven! :)

JUST like the inspiration photo for the latest inky paws challenge going on over at newton's nook designs!! 

see? i know you want to go there, just as much as i do! :)

which is why i created this card!

see? i wish you were here, too! lol!
my card is all watercolored! the background and the main image! 
i LOVE how the hula bunny from beach party came out! so FUN! and i even added a little bit of glossy accents to her ears, because....well, it was on my desk, so i used it! lol! 

i popped up the bunny onto that handcut beach sand. i used white heat embossing for the waves and purposefully made the wves darker towards the top of the waves! LOVE that look! :)

finally i stamped the sentiment onto a hand cut vellum banner and that was the card! totally LOVE this! :D that sentiment is from the newton's summer vacation stamp set!

hope it inspired you to get your own paws inky and play along - you could win some newton's nook! that's cool!!
