Let's go surfing now

I used a technique I call spot lighting.  I started by punching 3 circles from each of 3 different papers I chose for my background.  I then used one of the negative spaces as a stencil for my printed digital image.

 See?  How fun is that?  I used 3 spot lights, using colored pencils and mineral spirits to blend the colors.
 Tada!!!! How awesome is this card?  I LOVE it so much and HOW CAUTE! is that image?
 I used some crystal effects and added a few sea shells and some blue sand.  I covered the water area with the sand.
 Here's another shot, I love it so much, did I mention that?  I added a fabric covered button from Pinque Peacock to embellish my "sun"
 Inside I added a  fun sentiment

Thanks so much for stopping by, have fun with the new images :)

Adding the spotlights was a really neat idea. Another job well done. Love the little shell in the bottom too.
