 Over at the Color It Create It Show It Off Challenge this month, we are using the Theme By The Sea!  Perfect for the season what with everyone heading to the Beach or Pool to beat the Heat~I'm using img 086 and she can be found here in Sherri Baldy's Shop.
I LOVE this throw-back to sort of a vintage style bathing suit!  I always color on the heavy side with copics so I wanted to challenge myself to keep it light and airy.  I think I achieved that with the baby blues and taupes- splash of melon in there also.
The best feature on this card is the medium I used for the splashing waves and foam--Frantage with blue & silver glitter and white chunky bits.  It did amazing on getting the ocean action!  First time I'd tried the sand dunes so expanding my horizons!  Tied some khaki Bakers Twine around the matted image and attached a silver sunglasses charm.  On the inside panel, I used some floating bubble paper and a great Sentiment stamp from KKS!  Be sure and enter a card or project yourself into our monthly challenge--great chance to receive a choice of images from Sherri!
