On the Beach with Try it on Tuesday

Now when the mojo goes AWOL there's nothing like a little bit of colouring to make you say yes! I have done something :)
So when I got the new colour DI's they were perfect for the background of this Michael Powel stamp (which one of the DT team has also used at Try It On Tuesday) I've always been a fan of his loose, quirky and sketchy style .
I did the background first with the new colours more of them to come ;) then loosely water coloured with more distress inks

Not the best photos in the world but then it is raining here at the moment ........ Oh and did I say their sponsor is One Stop Crafts
