Two Tickets to Paradise

notecard and envelope

I have a very colorful notecard and coordinating envelope to brighten your day today.  All of the dies are newly released from Die-Versions.

To start out, the Jumping Dolphins were used on the envelope and were watercolored using Distress Inks (Pumice Stone, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Forest Moss, Ripe Persimmon, Abandoned Coral, and Mustard Seed).

The front of the card showcases the new Beach Turtles, which were colored with Copic markers and the shapes on the shells and the sentiment (created using the DV Frank font) were watercolored with Distress Inks (Ripe Persimmon, Abandoned Coral, and Mustard Seed).

The same colors of Distress Ink were used for the inside  as well (Ripe Persimmon, Abandoned Coral, and  Mustard Seed).  The Tiki was die cut from watercolor  paper and a black background was placed behind it.  The sentiment is the new Nautical font.

The colors are even more bright and colorful in person and makes you dream about being on a beach somewhere enjoying life :-).

Fabulous design, inside and out! I'm sorry about not visiting as often as I'd like these days. Thanks for understanding. hugs, de
