Twisted Thursday--Use Water, Waves or Wet!

Hello!! It summer and the perfect week for a water inspired challenge with Shirley's 2 Girls. Our Twisted Thursday challenge is to use WATER, WAVES or something WET on your project. I just love sand castles and this one was a lot of fun to play with, and what a great sentiment too. I started by coloring my image with Copic markers. I used some papers from DCWV and I chose those papers because the mosaic one reminded me of a pool liner and the other one is actually a piece of paper with waves cresting on a beach. To complete my beach theme here, I added a shell button and some star border. Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT too, we all have some really cute summer images.
