We've gone all beachy

Hello and welcome, the challenge at Stampotique this week is a theme,
The Beach is always such a relaxing place to be whether it's sun or just fun in the sand and surf, let's just see your best beach themed projects this week
I made two cards this time
Mela loves her new hat it keeps the sun out of her eyes
 This card below is done on Yupo paper, a great base for alcohol inks, they move over the surface in a very interesting manner. So for my beach and the sea, floating the ink over the paper with cut and dry sponge worked well, leaving a shiny sea. These two are fighting over the towel
Stamps I used
Mela
Underwhere
Hat Cube
Now I would love to see what you can come up with, good luck and have fun
