This little scene was inspired by a card that Dina did. Truth be told, I bought this adorable floaty penguin stamp because of the card she did. :o) I thought he looks sooooooooo comfortable. The colors of the scene are inspiration for this weeks Art Impression Challenge. I wanted to use my Spectrum Noir Markers so I took out my combo chart to decide which markers I needed. I didn't have the matches identified, so I played around with some colors and found the combos that match! You can see my full combo color chart by clicking on the chart on my side bar.
I stamped on Cryogen card stock with a Memento tuxedo black ink pad. I also used Eclipse tape to make a mask. I knew I was going to air brush the beach and water.
My Spectrum Noir Markers fit into my Copic Air Brush system. I was very happy about this discovery! :o) I masked my little guy and airbrushed the sand with TN1 and the the water with BT4 and BT9. I added several dots for sand with TN1 and TN2. Following Dina's lead, I used a white gel pen to add a few ripples in the water.
I signed my little scene, adhered the layers and stamped the image onto a piece of white card stock for the inside. He is ready to send!
