Life’s a beach

I would have loved to have gone to the beach last week – it was so hot it would have been nice to go somewhere to cool down.   Last night we had a tremendous thunderstorm, with torrential rain, and it’s still raining today – so not beach weather now.

This pig looks as if she is enjoying her swim – the image is the free monthly one from Deedee Anderson, which I coloured with Promarkers.   I used both sides of the embossing folder – Spellbinders Sea Beauty – and distressed the texture.   I ran my glue pen over the wave lines and dusted them with Glamour dust.   The sentiment was included with the image and I added a couple of gems – coloured with a Promarker.   The papers and shells are from my stash.
