Our grandson is a lifeguard and loves to play water polo so I thought of some images from Make It Crafty would work perfect for his birthday card. I used Cool Shades Jake and The Beach, both digi stamps, and merged them to make a scene for the front of the card. I also added the beginning of the sentiment to the front, and finished it on the inside. I used my Copic markers to color the image, except for his shorts - I paper-pieced those. I added a few sequins, a surfboard embellishment and glossy accents to his sunglasses to finish it up. Not too many things going on, but I am still learning with my markers and I am always worried about messing it up, but I guess that's just part of the journey! I tried to follow Zoe's ebook called Fun Techniques for Colouring Skies. This includes different kinds of skies, clouds, land and ocean. Take a look and let me know what you think!
