A BATHING BEAUTY



Hello Everyone.....and a Happy Sunday to all....

I've been having a wonderful clean up in my house today...making casseroles for the freezer for quick teas when I get home on these cold winter nights...sorting the cupboards and moving things around...I'll be lost for weeks..

Have another bathing beauty to share...this is Beach Babe Jayne  a freebie from Kathryn Stampart Design blog, by artist Crissy Armstrong for Whimsey Stamps..and she is a little beauty all right...



There she is, all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils....first time using distress ink for my sky,and was a little heavy handed with the blue..masked my image up, and added the sea with distress inks as well.."Broken China"...pencils for sand and added some dazzling diamonds for sea foam...


A few strokes of white gel pen in the sea and Marianne creatables Shells die...



and the side view...with her cocktail umbrella for embellishment..papers are from Rosies Studio - "A Gentle Breeze"

Going to enter this at Creative Inspirations  [At the Beach]

Thanks for stopping by..gosh, it is freezing rain and winds here today...worse than the last 6 DAYS!!!...must be getting old as I'm feeling the cold this year...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Lovely card honey, and great idea to freeze some dinners for another day. We do that too!! LOL It's great when you don't want to cook much, you can just reheat and it always seems to taste better too when it's had time to soak all the yummy flavours together!
Hope you've had a lovely weekend.

A fellow Chrissy!! I love what you did with Jayme!! In fact, your colouring of her suit etc is exactly what I imagined when I drew her. Such a great job! I love your backdrop and the little drink umbrella - toooo ca-uuuute!!!
