I was at one of my favourite all time spots on the weekend - Kootenay Lake! While out in the boat with my aunt and uncle we came across this cute little lighthouse:

I decided to create my own watercolour scene with these Art Impressions products. I am linking up with the "Oh the Places You'll Go" challenge over at Heart2Heart. I wasn't sure that the sketch over at Fusion would work for me so I was just going with the beach inspiration, but once I paired the right papers I found the sketch came together for me as well. The sky doesn't really come through in this picture but I did keep it a light blue (a shade lighter than the water) so that it looked like a sunny summer sky to link up with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
Paper - No Worries paper collection; Glacier cardstock (CTMH); Distressed Watercolour paper (Tim Holtz);
Stamps - WC Cliff, WC Lg Lighthouse (Art Impressions);
Markers - N65, N95, 126, 177, 451, 856, 969, 992 (Tombow).
