I've had my eye on this set for a while and when it hit the retired list I knew I had to get it.
I tried the colored pencil thing, but I don't have gamsol, so I used 90% alcohol. I want to get some gamsol and compare results because I'm not thrilled (and I'm sure it wasn't user-error ;) ). I had to watercolor the dolphins because I don't have a grey pencil.
Also, the background is Swirls & Hearts. I used markers to ink it so I could leave out the hearts. I'm really hoping that a just swirls background will be appearing in the next catalog!
I put a little stickles on the waves (can't see it in the scan). I crimped the lower/middle of the yellow panel.
