CASology - Sun

Stamps: Teeny Trees (Waltzing Mouse)
Ink: Chocolate Brownie (Elzybells); Tangello (Memento)
Other: watercolour pencils, scraps from stash
I've been all round the houses & back again with this card.  It's too easy to get sucked in with too much detail.  I've had stripes, waves, clouds, birds, beach umbrellas & more.  The trouble is, I don't (yet) have any yellow ink, which is a bummer when doing a beach scene...



The deckchair is 2 stalks from Teeny Trees (is there anything you can't use that set for?), the sand is watercolour pencil with a swipe of watery Tangelo ink.  The rest is scraps generated from previous iterations of this card!

Thanks for the challenge ladies - it certainly was.
