Dream Valley Challenge #11 - Summer Theme

This Sunday at Dream Valley we are thinking Summer!  It's warming up to be a hot one, so lets see all of those wonderful summer projects!  We are sponsored this fortnight by One Stop Card Crafts.  They have kindly donated this:

For my project I have used Tilda Surfing.  

This is the first time I have colored my image and then used clear embossing powder to do emboss resist on the whole image.  I like how it was easier to make the background, but I'm not sure I like the embossing pen that I have used.  It seems to have made Tilda's face green.  Maybe the wave twisted and turned her a bit and she's feeling ill! lol

These are the copics I have used:

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Under the Sea/Water Theme
2 Sister Challenge - Summertime Fun
Crazy 4 Challenges - Summer Theme

Have a great week and don't forget to show us some summer at Dream Valley!
