Sailing Fun

I don't consider myself very proficient at creating scenes, but I think I came up with a little beach scene here. For two small trees they were a little bit of a tussle. I colored the stamps with my juicy Marvy Brush markers, but when I stamped them they were spotty, next out came my PrismaColor pencils, and then, yes, you guessed it I cut them out. I stamped the sailboat in black and put in it my copier to make it smaller so it would fit in the background, but before everything went into place out came my chalks to create the sand, water, sky. This Coastal/Maritime stamp set from Inkadinkado is proving to be a very versitile set. How about all the spots and dots, kind of what you see before your eyes when you're out in the hot sun. :-)
