Creating memories

The Less is More Challenge is: something tropical.

I went through  my stash and found these palm trees from lawn fawn (critters from the past) and a bear stamp from Marianne Design (sf 1109 stampfairy designs). The bear is actually planting a flower, but I masked that off, so now it looks like he's playing on a (tropical ) beach and the plantingpots have become pails, which in hindsight i colored pot like instead of red or green...oh well...

I stamped everything with Versafine black onyx ink onto Schut watercolor paper.
I then used Distress inks to watercolor the image.
Mounted the panel with foamtape to adhere to the cardbase.

The sentiment is from Pink fresh studio (good sayings) and I thought it goes well with the holiday theme...creating sandcastles...holidays in the sun..memories...see how my brain works? lol
