A sunny day at the beach


Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely Easter! I've been having a colouring session with the new Magnolia stamp club kit and here's the first of two I've finished. The card is so simple it feels like cheating :D but for both of the cards I made it just felt like that's how they should be. 

I've created a beach scene and the gorgeous sitting Tilda (don't know any of their names yet) has been masked with the large shell from the kit, love her shoes! I added mini Tilda with life ring further up the beach and then the setting sun. Everything is water coloured with a mixture of distress ink markers, water colour crayons and water colour markers and I've added my doodling, faux stitching, the sentiment from the kit (doubled up on the word sunny), and pearl pen dots to finish off.

No such sunny day here....rain, rain, rain, all day! Back soon with the next card, enjoy your evening.
