Bird Crazy Vacation

My dear sister is going on vacation in a few weeks to Costa Rica; the lucky girl.
So with that in mind I created this "Bon Voyage" Bird Crazy card.

To created the background I sponged the sky and then watercoloured the ocean and beach. Once that was dry I stamped on the clouds and sun.

The bird and accessories were stamped on desperate paper and watercolours. once dry I cut them out using the coordinating dies. To create the look of glass on the lenses of the sunglasses I used Ranger's Glossy Accents.

To finish I added the sentiment on a little banner with inked edges and placed a few random turquoise iridescent sequins pieces on the water. I also aged the card a little with a light sponging of Soft Suede.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollection white, SU watercolor paper
Stamps: Bird Crazy, Crazy things, Bird Talk- Tim Holtz, Sprinkle of Life, kinda Eclectic - SU
Dies: Bird Crazy, Crazy Things - Tim Holtz
Ink: Various SU colours - Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Hello Honey, Basic Black, Craft White, daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip
Misc.: Ranger's Glossy Accents, Sequins, sponge, watercolor brush

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
