Newton's Nook Designs Paradise Palms Set - Naki Rager

Awww, don't you just wish you were sitting on the beach watching this beautiful sunset!?
First I water colored very lightly with orange where the sun rays would be, then placed my stencil and went over it with a paint brush. The first orange was a bit too light so I added more orange in between the rays.

I stamped the 2 palm trees on an island image with versamark then randomly stamped the island image several times with also versamark. The stamped images were heat embossed with black to make a silhouette.

I LOVE this sentiment! It sounds like a fabulous way of life, doesn't it!?

I decided to create the ocean because of the sentiment ;-) 
It was water colored (of course) Then die cut with the Wonky Stitches.
Some copper sequins were added, and this beautiful sunset scene was mounted on this vellum with wavy patterns. I LOVE it!
