The challenge this week at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges is to create a card with a summer theme. I loved this surf board image from Daisy Doodles - as did other design team members so great minds do think alike :) - and decided to base my card on it. I had fun coming up with embellishments and took inspiration from a number of the surfing photos I found online. Since I believe most surfboards are heavily lacquered, I covered the surfboard with a layer of acetate after it was coloured. Unfortunately the camera did not pick that up, but trust me it is very shiny.
Last week Daisy Doodles added some wonderful new members to the design team so please make sure you visit the challenge and check our their inspirational work and then submit your summer creation. While a Daisy Doodles image is not required, there are lots of great summer images at the new Daisy Doodles store that would be wonderful for your project, so hop on over and pick one up today.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - One For The Boys
One Stop Craft Challenge - One For The Boys
Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge - Something For A Male
Quirky Crafts - Summer
Stamp Something - Something Summer
This image from Daisy Doodles is called Surfboard and has been coloured with a combination of prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.
