How was everyone’s weekend? We had such a fun Father’s day! We weren’t at the beach, but we were playing in water with the kids in our own backyard! Think baby pools and sprinklers and you’ll get the idea! I made this at the end of our day and left it on my husband’s pillow for him to find. I just thought the image captured a bit of the lazy summer day that we all enjoyed!
I did find the coloring of this image a bit tricky, but I’m pleased with the end result. I used my Letraset aqua markers and aqua brush pen to paint it.
I cut it out for a dimensional effect, but kept the card simple, because the image is enough to stand on it’s own I think. Aren’t these turtles by Cornish Heritage Farms cute? Tom Allen has designed a whole line of Friendly Kritters! They’re all adorable!
