Good morning peeps,
It's so lovely to wake up to another hot & sunny day here in Somerset :)
Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is
I've decided to go for a seaside theme for hubby's card as on Fathers Day he will be sunning himself in Portugal with Jodie as they will be on holiday with the Harley club. I've just bought Jode a pretty pink helmet with flowers on so at least part of her will look nice and girlie in amongst a group of thousands of bikers lol. They are both so excited & we are at the stage of the daily countdown! All day yesterday I kept hearing both of them say "only 19 sleeps", it's as bad as Christmas lol.
Images - all Magnolia, Edwin in Miami, Ocean background, memory shells, dragonfly, Tilda's butterflies, kite, & hot air balloons
Medium - Copics
I tried a new technique for me on the sand, I coloured it and then masked my images and using a dish cloth dabbed on Copic colourless blender solution to give it a textured look like real sand has.
Apologies that I don't have the Copic numbers I used today as I used so many I lost track.
