To the Beach!

At this time of year lots of folks are heading on vacations to sunny destinations....Mexico, the many great places to visit!  While I sit here staring at grey skies and unending rain, it picks me up a bit to think of the sun, sand and surf, so today I decided to play with this great image by Ildi Co, called Cuddles Kuma at the Beach.

And here's the final product:

There's no sentiment at the moment, but I left the top right hand corner empty so one can be added on there, once I decide who to give this to :-)

The background was made with the Copic air brush system, using just three colours--light blue for the sky, beige for the sand, and a darker blue just at the ocean line.  It's getting easier to create with this toy!  The main image is coloured with copics as usual.  The sea shell was created with a spellbinders die.

So what do you think, is this making you smile thinking of the beach?
