In less than two weeks my big work project will kick off – we have been working on it for the past 2 years.  Talk about stress and so many things to get done!  Plus summer is here and it has been in the triple digits for almost a week.   I needed a little “vacation” so I created my own little day at the beach.

I dug out my color spritzer tool from Stampin Up for this card.  This tool can be used with most markers (Stampin Up markers and Copics - sketch and ciao are my choice in it) and the result is a perfect sand look.  It does a wonderful job on “sky” as well.  It gives a different effect compared to the Copic Airbrush system - a bit more texture.
When I was done coloring, I added Glossy Accents to her goggles and her flippers.  Hope you are having a great summer!
