Hey crafty friends, I hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are. I’m in sunny Florida and we are in the middle of our summer weather. Most days are sunny and hot, so a nice break in the pool is always welcomed.
This month at the World-Wide Open Design Challenge Blog, I used Captain Cat by Julia Spiri, found here. As soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted to create a sailing scene with this little cat at the center.
I printed the image onto a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of smooth white cardstock and used my Copic Markers. I began by coloring the waves, following a tutorial by the very talented Amy Young.
After coloring the waves, I colored the sky, sand, then colored my main image.
