Bathing Beauty at the Light House

17:52:00

Hi everyone! It's time for a brand new challenge over at Tiddlyinks this week! A nice fun one, the theme is Summer. You could even use some of the brand new Annabelle stamps! Don't know what I am talking about? Then head over to Christy's blog to take a peeky - you won't be disappointed I promise! :D

For my card I was looking through the older Tiddlyinks stamps (Love this style just as much as wrynny!!) and I came across these two gorgeous images. I merged the Lighthouse with Bathing Beauty to create a little summery scene :)



Honestly I don't know what inspired my colouring on that hill LOL! It reminds me of the hatching we learnt to use as shading in Design School. I kind of like the effect even if it isn't 'correct' as such...creates some nice texture :)

Here are the copic colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: Y00, Y21, YR23, E33
Dress/Lighthouse: Blue B72, B97, B99 White Shading W0, W1
Life Ring: YR61, YR02, YR07
Lighthouse Windows: Y11, Y15, Y17, E33
Hill: Grass YG03, YG63, YG67, G99 Earth E31, E33, E35, E37


Hope to see you all playing along this week and don't forget to pop over and check out the dt inspiration and the new Annabelles! :D Thanks for stopping 
by!
