Fun in the Sun

I’m back today to share my latest creation for our Midweek Reminder post at Midweek Magnolia. Our current challenge is…

‘Fun in the Sun’.

I’ve created the sweet little card using ‘Playing On The Beach Tilda’ from the Summer Breeze Collection. I’ve used some gorgeous ocean/beach themed Graphic 45 paper and have kept my embellishments to a minimum.


My image has been stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I have coloured my image with Copic Markers in the following colours:

Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E55, E53, E51
Clothes - BG75, BG72, BG70, R05, R02, R01
Background - B0000, B60, BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG10, E55, E53, E51. E21

Here’s a close up of my image.


and one more look.
