There's just a week left for our June CAS Watercolour challenge.
This month I chose the challenge.
I found a piece of watercolor in my UFO box.
I had used watercolor crayons and a water brush to create an ocean scene.
Then I stamped some little sand dollars and starfish that were
way to big for the size of the scene!
I decided to see if I could fix it into a usable piece.
Nothing to lose, right?
And giant starfish and sand dollars are a bit unnerving!
I put a drop each of Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake re-inkers into the dips in a palette.
I wet the sand area with a water brush then picked up a bit of re-inker on
my brush and dropped it into the wet sand.
I kept adding more until I'd covered up the offending shells.
When it was dry, I cut it in half and added some birds to the scene.
I stamped sea oats on the other half.
I added a bit of white gel pen to the waves.
Better than before anyway.
I hope you'll check out the lovely ocean designs at
