Hello again! Are you liking the images so far? Well, there is still much more to come, so let's get to it!
Today I'm back with two more introductions for you... meet our little sand boy- Kaumaka, and our starfish girl, Aulii. They love to play in the sand, but I have a feeling Kaumaka is a little mischievous! I have visions of him ruining a nicely created sand castle!! LOL!
So I really wanted to pair these two up with the sand castle image, so I ended up making a longer card. It actually measures 3 1/2" x 7" which was wide enough for me to fit all three images, albeit they do overlap a little.
The card base is made from watercolor paper since I planned on using my Zig markers again. I love those things! Anyway I stamped the sand castle first and then used my markers to color it up. Then used my waterbrush to draw out the ink and water it down for a nice background effect. These make making backgrounds a breeze!
Then I placed my already stamped and colored up Kaumaka images next to the sandcastle along with stamping the sentiment (PTI).
I added Aulii on the other side of the sandcastle as she looked like she was going to place the starfish on the castle.
This card was surprisingly quick to make! These watercolor markers are actually must easier than the copics to use and you can still achieve shading if you want.
So, do you want to have a chance to win Aulii or Kaumaka? If so,here's what you need to do:
1) Leave a comment on THIS POST by 6/30/15 11:59pm HST; and
2) Tell me what your favorite beach is! I like Lanikai beach in Kailua but I think everyone knows that secret by now. That used to be our go-to beach back in High School.
Don't forget to check out my video on this card and stop by tomorrow for our last introductory post!
