Surfing on the Net

It's challenge time once again at Colour Crazy and this time we are sponsored by the wonderful Lemon Shortbread company.

Whilst the theme is always 'Anything Goes' for our participants, here on the DT we are adopting a Surfer theme this week, and between us we have been playing with boy and girl surfer images.

I picked the little girl, as I thought that would be a little out of the ordinary!

This image comes with the lovely background that you see, so I set to work colouring everything in, in flat colour, using my Spectrum Noir pens. But then I thought it looked a little too flat, so I went over the top with my Faber Castell pencils to add some depth, and also to make the surfboard look like it had some wood grain showing through (even though it is red!).

I then created a frame for my card using teal card, and this frame actually sits over the top of the design paper for a change so it is a little different.

I also decoupaged the little girl and her board, to make her a bit more prominent. If you look closely you might be able to see the shadows.  :-)

Thanks very much for visiting today, and I look forward to seeing you over at Colour Crazy this week.

Bye for now.
