In the sea!

Oh, oh, I am LOVING this new set of summer stamps from Magnolia! I have one or two currently as 'Work in Progress' but I finished this one off yesterday morning.

I decided not to use any other papers on this one because I wanted to keep it as simple as possible so I painted the whole thing in watercolours then applied a glittery 'sea foam' and raided my kids sandpit to create a real 'beach'! Here it is close up:

I have a fabby demo evening with my Magnolias lined up for tomorrow and I'm hoping the ladies (first time stampers!!) will let me take some pics of their own creations once they've had a play. Thanks for popping in and please pop back to see the other stamps - I'm onto them right away!! ;o)
