Views of the Seaside

In preparation for next month's challenge I decided to look at a few of the images offered by one of our sponsors and stumbled across some sketches that really captured my eye.  There were so many fabulous designs, and choosing one was difficult to say the least.  I finally decided on a few select ones that showcased the Seaside.  So finally in addition to selecting the one donated by my sponsor I purchased a few additional ones.

I immediately began coloring these amazing images with my Prismacolor Pencils and was just having myself a good old time when I realized that I had forgotten all about my upcoming challenge and therefore did not apply my challenge theme rules.  So of course I had to purchase another that was a really cool excuse to buy more (smiles).

I'm not real sure which one is supposed to be used in my challenge but I will use the one that follows the theme.   All of my images are from Delicious Doodles and colored with Prismacolor Pencils unless otherwise noted. Check her out if you haven't already, and when you visit Stitchy Bear look at her illustrator tab and you will find a list of very talented folks who's images cover a range of styles and themes.  There is so much to choose from.

Now, without further ado here are my cards that are fast becoming part of my collection I am referring to as "Views of the Seaside."

Image: "In The Harbour"
Inside Image:  "Open Sea" by Stampin Up

My second card in the collection is my attempt at a Window Card

This one although last is actually my favorite of these three.  I'm really proud of how my coloring turned out.

Lesia these are amazing images and you have coloured them beautifully - I love the way you have used the window on the second card, and have complemented the initial images with lighthouse stamps and die cuts.

Beautiful Lesia. Love the way you colored the Sunset at Sea one. I just did that one for last weeks challenge at Delicious Doodles and it was a great image to work with, so easy to color. Even tho with used the same image and both used Prismacolor pencils to color the image, they turned out so completely different. Great job. Fellow Mema's Crafts DT member Pennyrae
