~ Sometimes this is all you need ~

As soon as I saw the cue card for this week's CASology challenge, I knew I just had to ink up this beautiful stamp from Unity's Beach Girl.

I stamped the image using Simon Says Stamp Barely Beige ink. I used ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers to color the image and the background. It was so fun just to do some simple watercolor. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and heat embossed some fine black embossing powder. I then die cut the panel using a large stitched rectangle die from MFT. I adhered the panel to a white card base and BAM!

Here are the products I used for this card:
Stamps: Beach Girl (Unity)
Card Stock: White (PTI), Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor (SSS)
Inks: VersaMarkBarely Beige (SSS)
Tools: Heat Tool (SU!), MFT Blueprints 15 (SSS)

Go check out the challenge over at CASology!!
Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.

  1. Your card is gorgeous.. I love the watercoloring on it. So cute how you made a tan line on the lady's back.

  2. hey Crystal, quick question where did you use the aqua painters? Are they used with the Zig markers? Thanks!

    1. I scribbled on an acrylic block with the ZIGs and used the Aqua Painters to pick up and apply the color. I've found doing this gives me more control on how much color is added. :)

  3. Such a serene scene, Crystal! You can almost feel the sea breeze just looking at this beautifully watercoloured card in its hues of blues. Just lovely. Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week.
