Sketch Saturday/Teddy With Star

This my entry to this weeks Sketch Saturday. I have used my 'Teddy With Star' stamp which is one of the new Christmas stamps available at Pink Gem Designs. I have used my all time favourite colouring medium.......water colouring with Tim Holtz Distress Inks! It takes a long time but as you can see the effects are well worth it!

Where was I?

So where was I ? (see photo below)........
...........I was sitting on the habour wall at Bridlington on the Yorkshire Coast. North Beach is behind me and in the distance you can see the white cliffs of Flamborough seems I was all over the country even Italy judging from your comments lol! I am going to award the two stamp prize to Stephanie as she guessed the exact location. I am awarding a second prize of one stamp to Christine aka Nanaseaside as she was very close. Mind you she did have a head start on everyone as I was staying at the bottom of her street! lol. We shared a cuppa and had a good old crafty chat one evening. We had a fabulous week as the weather was glorious. It brought back childhood memories for hubby and I as we visited all the popular resorts up and down the Yorkshire coast where we spent our holidays as children....but not together of course as we didn't know each other then lol!
So congratulations to Stephanie and Christine if you would like to email me your stamp choices I will pop them in the post x
