Beach hut bunting

Saturday was sketch day as usual over at CMLI - often a highlight of the week. This week Kathy stipulated the use of a DL card and to use oodles of white space... so I had a rummage around and found this card stock which is textured and almost watercolour paper. I set about cracking open my watercolour pencils and waterbrushes as I relish any chance to practice.

A craft pal of mine has had a busy time of late and is taking a break for a few days by the coast. I thought this might be just the ticket to send to her for when she returns.

I've used Little Claire's beach hut stamp set and watercoloured the bunting and bucket & spade. The blue 'porthole' is chalked with two tones of  blue.

I'll also enter this into:
Little Claire - anything goes
One Stitch At A Time - anything but square
Paperminutes - water
Pixie Dust Studio - don't be square
