Beach Girl Patti

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Saturday Friends!  Here's a card that may make you feel a little warmer on this very chilly day...
 Lisa 
 
This is Beach Girl Patti (Q028).  Such an adorable image that makes you want to dream about those hot summer days... especially at times like this, when the temperature here in Ontario is in the negative 30s.  Brrrrr!!!
 
I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I applied some Glossy Accents on Patti's tube and flippers.  I love the shiny and slightly raised dimension that this gives to the card.
 
The pattern papers are from Echo Park-That's My Boy 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some SU Dusty Durango and White cardstock.  The image was cut down to a smaller size to better fit this card.   Foam tape was applied under the main image to help focus on Patti.  A YNS Die called Double Stitched Hills was used to cut a wave like background.  The flip flop die comes from Taylored Expressions and a white gel pen was used to highlight the flowers on the flip flops.  To complete this card, a bunch of YNS-Crystal Clear and Mint Green Gumdrops were added.  I hope you like today's card... and also hope you are able to keep warm this weekend!  

Supplies Used:
Ink - Tombow Markers - 905, 933, 969, N55, 491, and 990.  Versamark Ink Pad and Black Embossing Powder.
 
Paper - Echo Park-That's My Boy 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Dusty Durango and White Cardstock.
 
MiscGlossy Accents, YNS-Crystal Clear and Mint Green Gumdrops, YNS-Double Stitched Hills Die set, Sakura White Gel Pen, Water BrushFoam Tape and Glue Dots.
