Beach Retreat!

Happy Sunday Everyone! Iris here today with a CAS watercolor card showcasing the New Beach Retreat clear stamp set
This is a wonderful and versatile set and makes for a quick card. It is also ideal for watercolor beginners because of the simple scene. 

I stamped on the back of a Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
To color the image I used my Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils from Faber Castell.
The sentiment is included in the set.

I used a black card base and layered the image onto a piece of the Mermaid designer papers

For a bit of bling I finished off my card by adding some gemstones. 

Here is a list of all the Whimsy goodies I used on my card:

*NEW Beach Retreat Clear Stamps   *NEW 6x6 Paper Pack - Mermaid   VersaFine CLAIR Ink Pad - Nocturne (black)

Sparkletz - Winter Wishes   Sparkletz - Peppermint Jazz
