I printed the digital image "Dog Day Afternoon" from Karen's Doodles onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers. I cut around the image with detailed scissors and placed it aside.
Using Pan Pastels, I created a cloudy sky background on a panel of white cardstock. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions "Hanging Out At the Beach" and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.
I cut some white cardstock with a Nestabilities die and allowed it to frame the clouds. I pop-dotted the frame to give some dimension and depth. Then I placed my colored image onto the card, and framed the entire card with lime green and bright blue cardstock. I finished the card with a bright sheer yellow bow.
I thought this image was absolutely perfect for JUN13VSNO's challenge "Beach Bum". I was also inspired by the colors in the photo.
