Saturated Canary Challenge and then some...


This will be my very first entry in a challenge and I am super excited about it. I love Saturated Canary digi stamps. I made this card for a friend who is moving to California soon and thought hey why not enter it in the Saturated Canary "The Great Outdoors" themed challenge and perhaps a few others while I am at it. The digi is called "Toes in Sand" by Krista Smith. Below are details on the items used in constructing the card. I love how it turned out. 

I used my copics to color her up and here are the colors I used:
Skin: E15 and E21 (using the tip to tip method)
Hair: C2, C5, C7, C8, and Black 110
Surf Board: FYG1, Y11, Y15, Y17, B01, BG72, BG75, YR00, YR04, YR07, YR09
Swim Suit: RV04, RV06, RV09
Sand: E42 (dots with diamond Stickles on top)


Also used...
Paper Used: Echo Park 6x6 paper pad, Hello Summer by Lori Whitlock
Spellbinder Dies: Banners, Small Ovals, Big Scalloped Ovals
Assorted flowers and embellishments from my stash. Oh 
and my trusty sewing machine to add details.


Here is a close up of her...

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
