I used plenty of color for her skin. She is a sun-kissed beach baby after all. *wink*. I used: E50, E51, E21, and E33. Her cheeks were blushed with red chalk. Her wetsuit was colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I really like coloring in a hybrid style sometimes. I use what works for each image whether it's all Copic, all Prismacolor pencils, or a mix.
I made a "scene" with Surfer Dude using Flat-Bottom Clouds, Sunshine, and Jumbo Squiggle Border. He was "fussy cut" (cut along all the stamped lines) and adhered with black dimensionals. The sentiment, again, was stamped on one of the Sentiment Strips. (Have I mentioned I am loving those things?) The entire scene was placed on a layered circle piece cut with Circle STAX Set 1 and 2. I strayed from patterned paper on this one, opting instead to use card stock and an embossing folder.
He was colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I added some darker shadows with a BV Copic on his face to the left. The ribbon is Sweet Tooth and I created a "flat-ish" bow with hot glue (just folded the pieces and glued instead of actually tying a bow).
I finished off the inside with a mini-scene and a follow-up sentiment.
