One Touch of Nature - Beaches

Craft a Scene challenges is having a beach theme.  We are to make a beach project with a bit of sand and water.  I am still playing around with water color techniques and I included images from our sponsor Rubbernecker and Kittie Kits.

I started out stamping my two main images with Stays On black because I didn't want them to run when I added water to the paper. Then I used the sand stamps from the Kittie Kit Cause a Scene to stamp in the sand area. I watered and brushed this part until I was happy with the coverage.  Then I applied blue directly from the marker and watered it around.  The sky was next.  After it all dried I added the grass stamps, birds and sentiment (from Stampscapes) and colored in the characters.  The white water was added with a Uni-Ball Signo gel pen.
