a day at the beach

Okay, just one last post of art before I go . . . . for the ARTchix Studio yahoo group bi-weekly lottery!
The theme was "a day at the beach" and I tweaked it a bit, just for fun. I was not going to participate in this lotto because we will be away, but I decided to instead make sure I go to the library on the 20th of July to see who wins, where I need to send my ATC, or what theme I would choose for the next lotto if I am the winner!

The saying is rubber stamped and it is by CatsLife Press. I used a watercolour card I got from Helga at ARTchix as my base and colored it with a pale wash of Twinkling H2Os. I stamped with VersaCraft ink in brown and heat set it . . . then I added a transparency image (fish) from Sea dreams and a woman from the Hats and Parasols sheet, which I don't think is available anymore . . . The little starfish/london on her dress is from the Inchie World Transparency sheet! I used both a silver and gold marker to finish the ATC. Thanks to Christy Laudig for the great theme and of course to Helga for the inspiring supplies!
