Woodware challenge - By the Seaside

I don't have any suitable sea side stamp images so I decided to make a picture with dunes, grasses and the blue sky using 'Dylusions' paints, card and a little artistic flair!
The paint covers card beautifully and once its dry you can write on it too.
This technique is easy to do and I want to try and make a meadow next and add lots of
blue for cornflowers or red for poppies. 
I hope the pictures that follow explain the technique. I'm hooked!

My finished card.

Daubers and paints to colour a piece of white card to
create my, dune and sky.
My finished background
Add some brown paint to a tile and cut up some card
into different lengths
Dip the edge of the card into the paint.....
.....and touch the edge onto the painted
background. 
Using a shorter length of card and curving it to give
the grass the impression its being blown by the wind.
Next add some green paint in the same way. 
Work in progress.
Dab on some blobs of yellow paint
for flowers 
Draw in some seagulls with a black 01 Micron pen
Dab on some yellow with a large dauber to create a sun. 
Add a greeting suitable for the image. This is JGCL575.
