By The Sea
How cute is that little guy in the sand? And his toes? Well, I accidentally stamped part of the sentiment over one of his toes, but he's still adorable.
This is a new set from Lizzie Anne Designs called By The Sea. I love it! I just got the set Shore Thoughts, so I was thrilled to see that you can use these two sets together perfectly! I can't wait to play more!
See the sand? I'm happy with how it turned out. I used my Copic Air Brush System! Oh, I LOVE that little air gun! I first masked my images with my Eclipse Masking tape (that stuff is THE best), then I air brushed E34 using the chisel end all over at different distances away from my paper. When it was nice and covered, I put in my E25 marker but with the brush tip at the end of the gun, then shot tiny little speckles all over. I pulled the tape, colored the images, then added some shadows with my YG91 marker. I'm totally saving up to get a compressor.
Did you know that Lizze Anne Designs have their own forums? They do, AND, they have a sketch challenge each week. Plus, if you upload your creations to the gallery, you have a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate each month! How cool is that? I love their sketches. Today, I did this week's sketch. Here it is:
The bonus or extra challenge was to use brads. Check it out here in the forums. Come and play... then post to the forum with a link to your card. Leave me a link too, so I don't miss it. :)
