Life Is Better at the Beach

If you haven't purchased Stampendous!' Slim Cling Woodgrain Rubber Stamp, you're missing out on a truly versatile stamp. If you visit here regularly, you might remember that I created and shared a beach-themed wall hanging a while back. I revisited the technique that I used to create the tinted white washed wood to make this card.
