Fun in the Sun

Time for our next challenge over at Fresh Brewed Designs. So let's have some Fun in the Sun!

I used the Cutie Bug Snorkel digi image to create this tag.

Colored with Spectrum Noir Markers:
  • Starfish - OR2, GB3, GB2, Blender
  • Mask, fins, snorkel - IB1, IB2, IB3
  • Bug - BGR5, BGR3, BGR1
  • Ground - BT1, BT3, BT4 
  • Image Outline - BT1, Blender

I added Crystal glitter to the bug wings and Art Glitter Blue Water glitter to the waves and ground. After I colored the starfish, I used the Blender marker and "dotted" with the marker tip, to create some texture. Then I added a few dots of white gel pen. Little details like that really make a big difference. To make the swim mask have shinny glass, I colored over with a Versamark marker - then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Hop on over to the blog post for all the challenge and prize details - and to check out what the other design team girls made to share with you for inspiration. Don't forget to visit and "Like" our Facebook Page. :)
Hope you can join us for this fun in the sun challenge.

Happy creating,
