By the Seashore

This is a BIG card, it measures almost 6" square. The stamp was very big, so I had to make the card a lot bigger. And since I can't find heavy 12" x 12" cardstock anywhere (if you know of a source, you must let me know!) I used watercolor paper instead.

I was thinking of water coloring the image, it's been a long time since I did, but decided against it. I think I have much more control with colored pencils, and since my mojo has just gotten back from vacation, I didn't want to push it. Simple is better for now. I did use some Copics for the girl's dress and the water, though. Just can't find a muted blue green like it in my vast collection of colored pencils.

The paper is 'Dutch Girl' from an older Cosmo Cricket collection. It just totally reminded me of the seashore, absolutely perfect for this card.
I am very pleased with the way this card turned out, thanks for coming back mojo! lol
