Summer by the Sea


I know this doesn't look like a "fall" card but I have loved these summery, wispy images from Stampin' Up! Doesn't this make you want to head to the beach and avoid the cold that is coming -- at least to the northern climates of the USA!
I colored this image with my Copic markers. I have done a lot of work with those markers while I have been recuperating. I couldn't bring every thing upstairs to the recliner so I had to pick and choose what to have near me. I have also wanted to do more practicing with these markers.
I also added glittery highlights with my Sakura Stardust clear pen. It is too bad you can't see the highlights around all of the layers on the card. I even traced over the word "wish" with the pen.
Enjoy the cold -- and look forward to Spring and summer which will surely come. But not soon enough for me!

I just love your card and the layout techniques you used. And since I live in Florida it's still hot as blazes so heading to the beach sounds like a great idea to me!
Lovely work.
