I really love this digi stamp from Crissy and I've used lots and lots :o)

Just love those lips and lashes!
 I used a mustardy coloured paper and did a bit of tearing and inking the edges for the beach
 Used the same technique to do the water with 'waves' done with a white gel pen and pale blue vellum for the sky

Materials used

Memento ink pads desert sand and summer sky
Lots of ProMarkers
