A seaside sketchy ...

Hello lovely friends and visitors
I hope your week is going well
Thank you for the lovely comments on my recent creations
You are all very kind and I really do appreciate you

A really quick post from me as me pinkies are being naughty so I can’t type much and can’t create tonight – thankfully it is not as hot and humid as it was lol!  Here is a card that I made specifically for a challenge or two …

A 5" x 7" card which is okay to post 
More practice is required! 
A little embellishing
A final look

 A 5” x 7” card using some of those old Making Cards magazine papers!  I actually remembered to dig the papers out before stamping and watercolouring the stamp image.  I’m also back to experimenting with my watercolour paints and ink pads again.  This time I stamped the image using a light grey ink so that it would not be so obvious.  I think it has worked and you will be seeing more of these experiments over the next week or so!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment
I really do appreciate it Thank You
I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week

Pretty card Karen! I love the summer scene you have created. The papers are perfect summer colors. I love how you stamp with a light color so the "outline" doesn't show, can't wait to see other images done this way. Hugs, Brenda
