By the Seashore

I made this card yesterday for the featured stamper. Denidill was the featured stamper. I changed just about everything on her card except the layout. I like her colors so I used similar colors. Im still playing with the few copics I have so I decided to use them. For my card I used prismacolor markers and copic markers.

I really liked the colors of my card. They remind me of bedding and pictures you see in beach hotels!LOL! The idea I had for my card was to use the layers as backgrounds. The top layer is soft sky stamped tone on tone with the waves from the MFT set. After my card was uploaded I realized I goofed and layered it upside down!LOL! Well just think of them as clouds instead of waves! The bottom portion is kraft stamped with itty bitty backgrounds in chocolate chip for sand. I added soft sky ds ribbon and kraft taffeta ribbon using Hollys easy peasy ribbon tutorial.

For my main image I stamped the image using pallette noir ink. I colored her shirt in spring green prismacolor marker and her pants and hat with BG10 Cool Shadow. For the skin tones I used E00 Skin white. I didnt know what to do to color the dog so I used Y17 Golden yellow and the colorless blender. I touched the blender pen to the marker to pull the color so it wasnt as dark. I outlined the image with C1 Cool Gray No.1. I wasnt as pleased with my coloring on this image as my first guess I had beginners luck!LOL!

BTW if you get a chance stop by my friend Denise's blog and congratulate her on getting DIRTY! Yayy Denise! She is an awesome stamper and definetly deserves to get dirty!LOL!
