Summer Romance Mixed Media

Hi there. I have a card to share today, which I'm hoping will warm me up as it's very chilly down under in Melbourne - brrrr!

Lots of challenges have a summer theme, so i thought I'd have some fun and join in.

I stamped beach scene from kaisercraft, using distress marker directly on the stamp and spritzing.
I have used various mediums to complete the scene including distress inks, brushos and inktense pencils. I used a stencil on the sand for added depth. I was trying to get colours reminiscent of a polaroid pic - not sure if I succeeded.
The flower was cut with Silhouette using designer paper with added highlights.

I'm entering this in the Anything But Cute Challenge (Summer Romance) and the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge (Summer Days).
