Oh I do like to be beside the sea...

Welcome to my new look blog...the black background and triple columns from 12 years ago has gone *sob* and now I'm on neutral colours and a more simple streamlined appearance. I figured that I dont need so much info on my blog nowadays, but it really took some doing, lots of memories.

Anyway..less of the chit-chat and on with the artwork.

Its week two of Stampotique's Designer's Challenge SDC254 Beach/Sea theme.  I hope you liked Mondays new stamp blog hop...?  If you missed it, the link to my contribution can be found in the 'featured post' on the side bar to your right. Thanks to everyone who kindly stopped by and left a comment...good luck in the prize draw!! (you still have time to leave a comment and be a contender...you have to be in it to win it!!)

Here's another piece using one of the NEW stamps...It's using The Crew #14018 from Kassa Hayseldon's new collection at Stampotique which I thought would make a fun, albeit unusual, beach scene. I placed the dynamic trio underneath a shady parasol that I drew for them along side  Starfish #3015.

I used Prima watercolour paints to colour and finished with a white pen border.


I hope you can join in with us for our second week. You can enter TWICE now (new rules are on the Stampotique Designer's site) which doubles the chance to win the $30 gift certicate. But if you are a fan of entering one piece for multiple challenge sites, then the new rules say no more than 4 others plus Stampotique's.

Here's a close up of The Crew having a day by the sea... 

Have a good week...hope to see you on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog 

x Jo

I love the blog hop. The new stamps are adorable and I'm in that stage of wait till I find some money, my usual stage of development.
