Swirly sea card

It's week 81 over at 'Less is More' & this time it's a theme
I decided to use my watercolouring paper for a change. I
didn't make the mistake of using it as a card base this time
as I find any card warps when you wet it....lesson learned
 there. I just used them as panels , the swirliness of the blue
 reminded me of water and foam swirling around, although
 it could also be sky too I suppose.Anway I went with a sea
 theme and added white embossed swirls and then some deeper
 blue inking .I used some tearing at the bottom of each panel
& added some glamour dust amongst the 'spray' .I will add
a sentiment when I decide who to send it too.
ps. another hot day here again, we are in and out of the pool .
My son and family came yesterday and are coming again today
lol ....the draw of the cool  swimming pool is enough I think.
My grandson  joined us too this time for a brief paddle
 and loved it, pic below.

Fabulous sea card Viv, almost stormy sea I think! The best photo is you and Alex though, he looks as if he's having a wonderful time, I can't wait for our French trip for Charlie to keep up his swimming lessons:) Just had to grab the washing in, it's very dark and rolling thunder!! Now it's raining:(
