Vintage seaside


This is my entry to the current Less is more challenge - seaside, I am also entering this card into the All sorts challenge - Vintage. I wanted the figure to look like a colored postcard image, so I stamped with brown ink and then lightly shaded with pencils.

a bit like this

As it is the seaside I also am entering the below image to the That's Crafty challenge - Friday 13th part 1
I made this with brushos, spray inks over a stencil by Brett Welde and then used Andy Skinner stamps on top. I love this stamp set it adds texture really well.

and I am finishing with fabulous fish (sharks can be glittery pink if they want) and Felixstowe looking beautiful in the sun.
