Beach Days....

Here's a Emma Canning image on the Digistamp Heaven CD for Polkadoodles, I cut her out using the Scan N Cut - it did a pretty good job I think. Then I coloured her clothes using buttercup, mustard and ivory ProMarkers....

I wanted her to look tanned, so decided to start by colouring in the areas that always catch the sun in Coral.....

then I added Tan, going over the areas already coloured with the Coral marker as well to blend it.....

then I went over all the skin with ivory, drawing in the other colours. Her hair was done with Ginger and Spice, and the deckchair with Lime and Lime Zest

I used the lovely new Harbour Boulevard papers from Craftwork Cards and cut a wave border with a built-in design on the Scan N Cut - I positioned her so that she looks as if she has pulled up her chair to the waters edge and is having a paddle. I hope she remembered the sunscreen with those red shoulders!

See you tomorrow x

  2. Oh dear, she may be a bit sore in the morning. Great card Enfys - that machine certainly cuts out the detail beautifully. Pat x

  3. Fantastic job, enfys :)

  4. Enfys, this is fabulous. Love the papers and the dig is terrific, Love her tan. Markers and I Do Not get along. My coloring looks like a kindergartener did it. But the way you did that tan, amazing.

  5. What a great card. Thanks for sharing and sharing your coloring tips. I learn so much from you.

  6. Always enjoy your cards. Altohough they feature a cartoon look, the meaning behind the "look" is so true. I can relate to her especially when I was young and foolish and just wore baby oil for sun screen.

  7. Too cute! Still nursing these back? Good girl... hope it's getting better. Big hugs, Jess

  8. Great image and beautifully coloured Enfys. SnC did a great job as well!
