"Surf's Up"

Surf's Up
Here in Australia we are almost saying goodbye to Summer :(
I can't say that it has been much of a Summer though in this part of the world.  
Maybe it will just come late. (yes, I am an optimist)

I was reading The Craft Stamper and was reminded about using
the picket fence resist technique...and decided to have a go.

My imagination got carried away, as usual, and I went for an
Hawaiian sunset effect...using a silhouette stamp.
I love how the picket fence comes through to the front.

A little flick of water here, 
a few drops flicked on with the festive berries DI there,
 and the paint did all the rest!

I hope you enjoy my card.

I have put this into the 'made by me' section of The Craft Stamper website
