Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #8 - Anything Goes

The Lil' Patch Challenge #8 is an anything goes challenge.  I was lucky enough to be able to use an image from one of our three sponsors, A Day For Daisies.  They're a dream to color.  This on is called Aloha Parasol - she's just luscious!  I decided she was going to be a more "mature" woman and gave her some wrinkles around her belly.  Although now that I'm thinking about it, I'm not sure my mature gal would be wearing such a itty bitty bikini! I colored pearls with my Copics and added them to the parasol and as accents around the sentiment.

I used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to design my card.

Copics Used:
Skin:  E000, 21, 11
Flowers:R11, 20, 22, 24
Parasol: Y00, 04, 08 R20
Bikini:  BG000, 11, 32
Sand:  E41 (based) and dots of other E colors, some R20 and BG 11

The three sponsors for our challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends means more chances to win prizes for you!  I love that Denise has three sponsors per challenge -  and the challenge this fortnight is anything goes!!  Take a peek at the DT's use of sponsor images here and be inspired to play along.
