T&F ATC: summer fun

It's Wed, which means ATC time and something just for a bit of fun. This week's theme is 'summer fun' so anything summer inspired. I thought it was perfect excuse to ink up Surfer Ian from The Greeting Farm.

I wanted to create a motion effect so stamped him again twice in the background in versamark and heat embossed it before sponging the background and drawing in some waves. Then I just stamped and cut out another surfer Ian, coloured him with Copics and stuck him on with 3d foam. I used a darker Copic than usual to give him a nice tan - factor Copic E11 LOL. Stamped the word sunshine across the back (more to hide a bit of smudged ink than anything else!) and added an orange mat and so more wording in the corners and that's it . . oh and a bit of stickles too, can't not have a bit of glitter somewhere

Hope it brings a bit of summer to you, sure could do with some here! Don't forget to pop on over to see the rest of the DT's summer fun and maybe join in too (great for trying out ideas and if you're a colouring junkie like me :)). Have a super Wednesday.
