Ice-cream & Polaroid beach scene

Ice cream & Polaroid

This was created on 19th July: day 15 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

Like a lot of the cards I created during the colouring challenge, I didn’t start out with any real idea of what the final card would look like; I was just colouring images for the fun of colouring. This card started with the happy ice-cream and built from there.

Thanks: Red-headed girl

The colouring was done on 12th July: day 8 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

Another cute free digi stamp from Just Inklined and some more Copic colouring; I do use other mediums occasionally, but I have to say that me and Copics just get on 🙂

I didn’t have a plan for a finished card when colouring her — she just ended up in the PHDs pile (Projects Half Done) — so this was a good opportunity to raid my backgrounds box for inspiration and use up some experiments.
