Sizzlin' Summer

Dreaming of hot summer days lounging on the beach - what a lovely dream!!  Some day the rain will stay away, and we can all enjoy the heat that this lovely lady is experiencing.  This week at Outlawz Copic/ Promarker Summer challenge you need to create a summer background, so out came the airbrushing tools for my Copics.  I started by masking off the area that the sand would be as well as the sun, then used Maya Road Resist to mask off the white caps in the water.  The sea and sky were airbrushed with B21 and B24, the sun was FY1, and the background of the sand was E23.  I used a Versa Mark embossing pad and Ranger Distress Tea Dye Embossing powder to make the sand grainy.  After removing the Maya Resist, the white caps of the waves were enhanced with Flower Soft Polar White.  The image "Florence" and sentiment are from Kraftin' Kimmie, and of course were colored with Copics.  Seashell charms were from my stash.  I am entering this card into the following challenge - Outlawz Copic/Promarker Summer Backgound.
