A day at the Seaside


Card Week at Tuesday Taggers and theme is to  be inpired by the   'Beach'.
Pop over here to see the super examples done by my fellow team-mates.
My thinking for this card was to create a scene using some Elusive Images stamps [now Chocolate Baroque]. Colouring  and shading with cosmic shimmer watercolour paints.
 I then remembered I had this super bathing belle by Crafty Individuals, with the words we all know well,-
I do like to be beside the seaside,
I do like to be beside the sea.
So at this stage I decided enough was enough, add the seagulls who always seem to be around when eating the sandwiches  and layer it up.
Another seaside theme this card will fit  is here at  the Craftroom Challenge blog  'Summer Holidays'

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
