I do love to be beside the seaside ...


... I think that's what this little chappie is singing!

This card is based on sketch 225 on Sketch Saturday, which this week for sketch 264 was asking us to choose any sketch from 216 onwards:

I've used a mixture of offcuts of spots and striped papers and a blue wood print behind the image, which is from the Nutcrafter sailor boy digital stamp set (I cut and paste the two images to go side by side)  which I chose as my prize for winning Nutcrafters 44. I coloured the image with a mixture of copics and Marvy le plume alcohol pens.
