Sending you sunshine!

Today is Wednesday and that is sketch challenge day at SCS.  This is one of my favorite challenges and I really try to get this one in.  For this, I used my new MFT set By the Seashore .  This is such a fun set!! It really gets me excited for summer and hopefully spending time at the beach! We usually have our family summer vacation on Cape Cod, but we may have to pass it up this year due to moving and such.  It will be the first time in 6 years we will not have a family vacation! 

The main image was stamped and colored in with Copics and Prismacolor Markers.  The sky and shoreline were sponged in. The shoreline has some clear Spica by Copic for some additional sparkle, but you can't see it in the picture.  These spica pens are awesome when you want just a subtle hint of glimmer!  You can find them at MFT too!  I wanted it to be a continuous "mural" but I couldn't decide on the side panels of what to make of them. So I opted to make each one a little different but the sky to be continuous.  I am happy to have utilized my ever so neglected eyelets for the sides and string through some twine.  The main panel and sentiment are popped up.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
