Summertime Fun Challenge

Today my card is for the Love To Create Summertime Fun. I used an image from Robyn's Fetish that is just perfect for this challenge. I also used the 4 Crafty Chicks sketch for my design.


I smoothed in the sand and sky with PanPastels. Love the applicators because the color just glides on smoothly.  I also used them for the bathing suite.  Then I colored in everything else with Copics.

Card Recipe
Images: Robyn's Fetish Seashells for Sale, Stampin Up Think Happy Thoughts sentiment stamp
Paper: Bazill Cream, GinaK Pool Side
Markers/Ink: Copics - C1, C3, YG23, Y13, Y08, YR02, E01, E02, E11, B32, E17, Panpastels for the sand, sky and bathing suite
Embellishments: Spellbinders Fancy Circles, SU pearls colored with B32


We have two sponsors this week - Robyn's Fetish and Digi Darla.  Hop over to the Love To Create challenge blog and check out all the great inspiration from the design team

Challenges for this card:
Have a wonderful Monday!
