By the Seaside


I made this card for the St Lukes challenge, I knew just what I wanted for the 'seaside' theme and spent three hours getting it totally wrong, why is it when you don't need a thing you get it right, any way this was plan b using my scene it stamps and watercolours, should have done this in the first place!

This is lovely Maureen and so fitting for August and summer holidays. It makes me think of Lyme Regis which is one of my favourite holiday resorts. I love the delicate way you have added colour to the stamped images.

You do this scene-stamping so well. Such pretty delicate colours and clever layering. It was worth it in the end!!
