Design Team Spotlight - Laura

Hi everyone! It's Laura here today for my first turn in the spotlight! :)

We have had beautiful weather in California lately, and my kids are already asking about going to the beach!! It's not quite warm enough for a beach day yet, but it did inspire me to color up this adorable Cali Girl digi.

I love to color these sweet images, and I think they are the perfect focal point for a clean and simple card. I matched this little girl up with some bright, sunny papers, and created a little scene around her. After masking the image, I colored the sand using the pointillism technique (a great way to add a bit of texture to an image!) and sponged some clouds in the sky behind her. 

And for all of you Copic enthusiasts out there... a close up and list of colors I used for this girlie...

Skin - E11, E00, E000, E000, R30
Hair - E59, E37, E35, E33
Duck - Y15, Y13, Y11, Y000, Y0000
Beak - YR18, YR15, YR12, YR00
Bow - B04, B02, B01, B000
Pail - YG17, YG25, YG03, YG01
Swimsuit, Sandals, Bag - RV29, RV25, RV23, RV21
Sand (not shown in close-up) - E55, E31, E30, E50

That's all I have for you this time! Thanks for visiting!
