Beach Babe

Hello.  Welcome.  Have you seen the lovely beach themed stamps over at Rubber Dance?  The first time I saw the Take the Plunge set I thought the girl would look great sitting against that cool beach rules notice.  

I wanted to keep it simple, although the blue did become a little more extensive than my original plan LOL.  I used a cream base card.  I stamped the girl with Archival Potting Soil ink, masked and stamped the bye-laws notice.  Then I used Distress Salty Ocean on her towel and watered it down to do the sky/sea.
