Clean Crafting!

The Bathroom is getting a makeover into a shower room.  Be fab when it is finished but between now and then the water keeps getting turned off, not good for messy style crafting.  A couple of my projects are on the back burner until the work is finished for now it is strictly clean crafting.

This card was inspired by the summer, holiday/vacation, sea side challenges around at the moment.   It is a Stamps Happen Inc image that I've had for years and love to use.   The drawing is so straight forward and lends it's self to a vinaigrette style that makes colouring it a treat as well.  The ink did catch quite badly but I kept this one because it is one of those accidents that add more then they take away.

Using the Chameleon pens inbuilt blending and colour building abilities bring depth and dimension to the picture was a doddle.  No sentiment tend not to use them but if one is called for it can be added later.
