Dreaming by the Sea

Hello Friends! Larissa here with you today with a card I made using the Clip Art Sheets. 
I have been trying to work out of my comfort zone lately and thought about this card being the perfect project for me. 

I started with one of the images from the Clip Art Sheet BY THE SEA

I took the image and transferred it onto a piece of watercolor paper using gel medium. Once it dried I roughed up the edges of the image a little to give it the worn vintage look. I then added some clear sealer to the top of the image.
Once it dried I wanted to tone down the image so I added a pearl shimmer paint to the top. Just a very thin coat. 

 I liked the way it aged the image. Before I adhered the image to the card front I turned it over and sprayed water all over the back. Once it dried I was happy with the way it looked.
I roughed the edges of the card front a little to also give it the vintage look. 
I wanted to add a sentiment to the front but could not find any that I really thought went with the image. So I pulled out my drawer of embellishments and found this little round embellishment that said Dream!
It was perfect. It finished off the vintage look I was going for.
As much as I would love to send this card off to a friend I fell in love with it.
I decided it would look better on my shelf in my studio so I grabbed a 4x6 clear frame I had and slid the card inside.
What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my post.
Have a wonderful day friends.
