By the Sea Scenic Stamping

Hello stampers! It is a new month and a new challenge at Craft a Scene, By the Sea. I wish I was at the sea today, instead let's go there in a scene. 
I made a square (10 x 10 cm) scene today using Stampscapes stamps. The Seaside Dwelling is a really nice stamp with great details. The sea was done by repeatedly stamping the Waves Small and added some cliffs in the foreground. All the stamping, except for the birds, was done with Archival Jet Black ink. At first I planned to do a monochrome blue card, but later decided to add some purple, for a little drama. As usual, highlights were added with a white gel pen and some foam to the water by dry-brushing white pigment ink here and there.
Thank you for stopping by! We are looking forward to seeing scenes by the sea this month and don't forget to check out the cards by my fellow DT members.
Happy stamping!
