Simple Watercolor Beach with Aqua Painters and Ink

Hi Everyone! Today I thought I would share a pretty card that is very satisfying to make.  If you like to watercolor, than this is right up your alley. If you don't, try it! It is easier than it looks and is relaxing to paint. 
I used just a few colors, Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, and Pacific Point! Like how I choose all the beachy named ones? I also used a tiny bit of Petal Pink on the shell on the photo to the left. 

Once you have your beachy background you can add a sentiment and embellishments from so many of our stamp sets.  This card uses the Seaside Notions stamp set.  Other great ones for this technique would be the Sea of Textures, maybe Magical Mermaid, Sailing Home, or By the Dock. I bet you have something that would be great.

I made a step by step video that shows how I made this card with an alternate version at the end. check it out!

Here is a photo of the Beach Background before I added the embellishments.
