I wish I could draw and paint. Thank goodness for rubber stamps is all I can say. I've got these fabby sets by HobbyArt called Scene-Its and this card is made with stamps from the Harbor set and the Coastal set. I stamped onto watercolour paper and left the edge at the top where it had been torn from the pad. Stamping this scene involved using masks and the ones I made for the little yachts were teeny-tiny! I then watercoloured using Stampin' Up inks (Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Basic Grey, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise and Marina Mist). Then I mounted my little watercolour onto dark blue card. The seagul was cut and mounted with nesties and popped with foam squares. He is a Blackheaded Gull by the way. The bg paper is from my friend Ei and is from the Roseheart Digi set. The strip with the seashells I made by stamping the shells from Personal Impressions Clear Summer set in Tempting Turquoise. To finish off I added a little ship's wheel charm.
