I Love the Seaside!

Hi! It's the summer holiday season, and in a few weeks I'll be heading off for some relaxing sun and sea with my closest friend & her family! I really can't wait to get away :)

I have spotted a few holiday-related challenges around, and have just made a card that reflects my love of a quiet, empty beach, where you can walk for miles, or take a book, or go for a swim and not feel too shy about your swimming cozzy...

I made this using my Faber-Castell watercolour pencils, as you can just scribble a few different shades together and they blend really easily with a water brush. I added a bit of white for waves on the beach with a Uni Posca pen, and stamped some flying geese with an Inkylicious stamp.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
