On the Beach

The Wednesday Stamper challenge was an open one, so I thought I would make the most of the sun this morning and make this card in cheerful colours. In an entry below I said that yellow was a rare colour for me to use. I once said that about orange, and then used it lots too!
I'm very fond of the watercolour technique; probably because of the uniqueness of each piece, and the variation in colours you get - here with just 2 inkpads.

Hi! This is such a lovely card - the colours and the "feel" of the whole thing are just perfect! It really makes me think of summer (it is winter here).
