Life's A Beach
The more we get into summer, the more I'm believing that I need a beach in my life. I'd really like to getaway soon...to relax, read, and simply veg. Not that I'm doing any thing now. I'd just like to change locales, if you will.
So, to "take me away" for a bit, I decided to color this image from Outlines. I stumbled upon the Copic Colour Challenge blog, and decided to take a stab at Challenge #18 which was to use Copic colors BG05, R85, and Y15. I really liked this, because it just goes to show you that you don't need all of the Copics to do a decent coloring job. Those three markers, along with E13 and the Colorless blender are the only markers I used on this image. That's just 5 markers.
I stamped the image on coated paper with Marvy dye black ink. Various patterned paper, tag punch, computer-generated sentiment, brads and paper piercer were also used to complete this card.
Thanks for visiting my colorful beach.
