Surfs Up

It has been so long since my last post I can't believe it has been nearly two months. I have still been busy crafting but I haven't posted anything as I have been working on my sons quilt (the monster quilt) it is finally adorning the foot of his bed. The machine quilting looks fantastic. I have also been making a quilt for my brother and sister in law. I wont be posting any photos of this until after the baby arrives as I know what they are having and some family members don't want to know so I will show you photos after peanut arrives. It is also school holidays and we have been spending loads of time at the beach and pool. I think this has helped inspire me with the Copic Oz challenge #6 which is Summertime and to use the colours green and yellow. I was so pleased with how this card turned out, here it is
I used a Dustin Pike digi image I purchased in August called 'Surfer Dragon #2'. I then coloured the image using the following Copic colours
Surfer Dragon- G00, G12, G24
Shorts- R20, R22, R27
Surfboard- YR04, YR07, Y11, Y08
Sand- E41, E53
Water- B00, B21, B24
I then used a light blue card stock for the card. The surfboard paper on each side is from Rusted Sun and is called 'Surf's Up'. I used a Kaiser Rub On for the title and some ribbon from my stash. I love the way he turned out however I think I need a new camera because as hard as I tried the colours just aren't as good as real life.  Here is one last close up, until tomorrow I am busy working on my next creation.
