Sunny Day at the beach

Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely Easter! I've been having a colouring session with the new Magnolia stamp club kit and here's the first of two I've finished. The card is so simple it feels like cheating :D but for both of the cards I made it just felt like that's how they should be. 

I've created a beach scene and the gorgeous sitting Tilda (don't know any of their names yet) has been masked with the large shell from the kit, love her shoes! I added mini Tilda with life ring further up the beach and then the setting sun. Everything is water coloured with a mixture of distress ink markers, water colour crayons and water colour markers and I've added my doodling, faux stitching, the sentiment from the kit (doubled up on the word sunny), and pearl pen dots to finish off.

No such sunny day here....rain, rain, rain, all day! Back soon with the next card, enjoy your evening.

Amazing work Chris, far from cheating I bet more work goes into a painted scene like this than anything else! It's absolutely beautiful and I guess you can tell I love it lol!

Just perfect - definitely not cheating as it takes a lot of talent to do such a great CAS look that still has so much on it!! Looks like a little painted masterpiece :)

Dear Chris!
..always unique...always beautifully colored.
I love how you put the words on a fishing net. Very creative.
This is where mini Tilda's come in to their own when they are put in the background of a scene. I love your scene with your doodling. I love the sky with the setting sun and the seagulls.
I love how you colored the shell. A perfect color. Love all of it.
I also love that it doesn't need any embellishments.
Hugs Maz
