Beach for Two

Another stamp from the stamp show last month.

This one is from Rubber Cottage.

I stamped it with Archival ink then used watercolors, Zigs and 
Polychromos pencils to add color.

Makes me wish I was enjoying a water view.

This will have to do for now.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
