Summer's on the Way - Part 2


Hooray! Made it in time, here's my second entry to Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge, a second post in one day and both cards mde from scratch in a day too. You'd think I could have been this productive on a Bank Holiday when I wasn't at work but somehow it never seems to work like that!

I think this is just the most elegant seaside image I've ever seen, doesn't she just sum up vintage elegance? The amount I've eaten over the winter, her swimsuit looks like it's about the right style, shame I don't have her shape :).

Image coloured with Copics and a white Inktense pen for the waves, I've used my blender pen on the sky to make it streaky. Most days I can colour streaky without even trying LOL, but never happens when you want it to! Tag cut with a Big Shot die, background emossed with a Bigz plate, forgot I had it, great for a 5x7" card. Sentiment is Shirleys2Girls and little clear flowers are Impression Obsession I think. The ribbon is translucent white, coloured with Copic pen

I'm entering this card for the Copic Creations Challenge, which is colouring other surfaces this week, Midnight Madness' Anniversary Challenge (sketch) and a second entry for Lili of the Valley's Here Comes Summer Challenge.

  1. Anne, you have been as busy as a beaver as we would say here in Canada:) I love the second card as much as the first and the sky and waves are fantastic. Thanks for joining us twice at Isabella's Sketchbook.
