I Need Vitamin SEA Distress Ink Watercoloring


Hi readers! Happy Wednesday! I “eeked” with delight, when Yana Smakula showed me her design for her second monthly feature of April. Between the sweet Happy Swimmers stamped image, gold embossed Vitamin Sea sentiment, Pretty pink posh “bubbles”, “smooshed” distress ink background, and glossy accented swim mask, this card is a slice of summer themed perfection, and I can’t wait to start the season!

Be sure to watch the video, and enjoy!
