A day at the beach

This card was made using two digi-stamps from Meljen Designs side by side.

Beach umbrella: http://whimsystamps.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_18&products_id=1101
Sandcastle: http://whimsystamps.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_18&products_id=1030

The umbrella and bucket was paper pieced. The sand was shaded using a tissue over my finger dabbed with Wheat chalk ink. The rest was colored with normal coloring pencils.

The clouds (a first try) was done using Gina K's technique for clouds. See here for the instruction video: http://stamptv.ning.com/video/quick-and-easy-clouds-1
