life is better in flip flops - Aud Sentiments #181

Thursday June 1 - 12, 2017
 
Welcome to another two week challenge at Aud Sentiments #181   our theme for this challenge is
SUMMER + SENTIMENT
 

Our sponsor for this challenge is Paper Nest Dolls
 
 I am using the image called Snorkel Ellie.. I fussy cut her out and colored her with copics and pencils in a few places. I then used water color paper and Ranger inks and created the sand, water and sky. I added some drops of water and dried the background. I then colored the dog (Lawn Fawn) with copics and used a terry towel with colorless copic to give texture and the seagull (?) I colored the seagull with Prisma pencils..  I used an EK punch for the flip flops. I made a slit in the sand and stood the flip flops up so they looked like they are stuck in the sand. I added some stamped seagulls (?) and heat embossed in white on vellum the Simon Says sentiment. To finish it I used Sequins to give sparkle to the water area..  If you need inspiration please head over to the Aud Sentiments site and see what the DT created.
