Let's get started !!

Here's my card for 
I took a piece of white cardstock and sponged
my sky, using a mask for my sun, and blue for 
the ocean. I added a variety of reds, yellows and
oranges for the sunset colors. Then I stamped
my image and sentiment in black. Taking my 
Copics I colored the boat and land. I used
black for my laying to bring out the colors of 
my image. I took a coordinating piece of CS
and embossed it with nautical folders and added
some twine and starfish charms.

Stamps can be found in MFP Stamp Shop.
I used 
"Island Life"
