Beachy Warm Wishes

I have been playing around with my cloud template and using different inks and pens to see which one I like the best. I made these clouds by sponging Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink. Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show it so you will just have to believe me when I say that the clouds have a real sparkly shine to them.
Just by choosing my new little CC Designs Beach girl image, Beatrice, by colouring all that blue sky, by picturing her frolicking in the summer sun - even though it is winter here in Melbourne, I am actually feeling very very warm. Hold on ... no ... that has passed. Cold again!
