Summer by the Sea

I wanted to try my hand at watercolouring. I'm certainly not an expert and I'm definitely in need of lots of practice. I've had my Summer by the Sea set for many moons so that was my goal today, to get an image decently coloured.

Here's the result. I don't think it's too bad. I used Apricot Appeal, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, Mellow Moss and Creamy Caramel.

The stamp that I used on the middle layer is from the Boho Backgrounds set. 'Friends' is a Stamp It stamp that seemed to suit the card perfectly.

Thanks for looking.
