Beach boy

This is such a lovely stamp set. It’s lovely to colour, the images are so soft and gentle and there’s an image in there for so many occasions; this one for cards for small boys, a little girl, a couple for Valentine’s Day or anniversaries, a person on a boat who can be made into a man or a woman. And, of course, it’s idea for scrapbooking those beach holidays.

I coloured this image using the Watercolour Wonder™ crayons – the Earth Elements pack – and blended them with blender pens. Very therapeutic!

The paper is my first cut into a brand new pack: Spiced Cider. Very gorgeous.
