Down at the beach

We're having a bit of summer fun over at Oddball Art.  Although I think the wether in the UK has got it's seasons confused again!

The image I've chosen for my inspiration is number 185.  She immediately spoke to me of summer - but I pondered a while to think of a setting.  In the end I went for a beach.  I sketched a little island in background and added some water, sand and bat reflections :)  All this was done with ProMarkers.  He's a close up for you.

Having coloured the image and mounted it onto some black card stock I decided to do a CAS card.  I've been doing one or two of these lately and hopefully I'm improving.

So all I used was some more black card stock for the back ground and some blue mushy patterned paper from one of Lili of the Valley's paper packs (that's the only way I could thing to describe it sorry - LOL!)

To finish off some self adhesive gems and a sentiment made out of letter beads.
So come on over to the blog and join us, we'd love to see your beautiful creations.
