I made my card a stair step card (Markie's Mom does a great tutorial). I thought it would be neat to have layers of waves and to have Ian riding them! The larger waves are punched with a Fiskars punch and glued to the front of the middle fold, then covered with a piece of embossed card stock, and the smaller waves are the pieces that were left behind after taking the big wave! The DP is from Paper Trunk and the sentiment is from the set Wardrobe #1 also from The Greeting Farm. Ian's surfboard has some Crystal Effects to make it nice and shiny and I popped him up on foam dots for dimension. Everything is colored with Copics:
Skin: Roo, E11, E13, R20, R22 ( My go-to color for skin is usually E00 with E11 for the shadow- the R00 is under everything - but for all of these summery cards I am really liking E11 with E13. It seems to give a good tanned look.)
Clothes: YR21,YR14, G00,BG000,BG02
