CCT~ at the beach: 'Lazy summer days'

Theme this week over on CCT is 'at the beach' so as this lil magnolia cutie fit the bill I've used the sketch (very loosely, so don't know if it still counts!) over on 'Just Magnolia' and killed 2 birds with 1 stone (as otherwise I always run out of time and my Magnolia 'collection' doesn't get used - bad huh?). Stash:
  • Images: tilda, rubber ring, flowers and sentiment all from current Summer Magnolia range
  • Colouring: Copics & bit of distress inks sponged on for background. stickles in the water and flowers
  • papers: an old DCWV stack - had this fab 'sand' paper in it and the spotty one was nice and bright for summer
  • Others: Circle & Peony nesties (thought the shape made it look like the sun), cuttlebug bubbles embossing folder

Have a good day.
