At the Beach

At the Beach - It is Friday and that means it is time for a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity!! Our challenge this week is "Oh, I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside!" It is a fun challenge and we do so hope that you will join us!

My Designer papers are Carta Bella, Ahoy There.

My image is Michelle Perkett Studio's Olive. I love to color Olive. I really love her belly. It is so much like a toddlers.

I colored Olive with Copics and then used a poster paint pen to add the highlights. I used Stickles on the Starfish and some fine glitter on the white ruffles on her swimsuit and on the headband.

I had a friend who colored this image and thought that the hat was hair. I thought it looked cute that way too, but she was embarrassed.

The little anchor was cut from the pad of paper and I added some Rock Candy Stickles to it.

I completed my card with some tiny pearls.
