I do like to be beside the Seaside

 A new Challenge theme  over at Craftycardmakers and its my turn to be the host.
The theme I chose is 'I do like to be beside the Seaside', however I would like you to make a Postcard [approx6x4inches] and it must include some sea and the beach. You can add whatever images you choose.

We have two sponsors this time, both offering generous store vouchers as prizes.

The Digi Doodle Shop

Please pop over to see what we have all been making and get all the details and I hope you can join us this time.

Well my Postcard show Gertie and Fredo  [Art Impressions stamps] enjoying a day out at their Beach hut,
taking the rays  with Gertie as usual giving Fredo a real talking to.
The background was watercolours using Cosmic Shimmer paints, I used Distress markers for the images.
Other stamps used are by Crafty Individuals and Chocolate Baroque.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
