Guesting at Sparkles

Morning, I'm guesting over at the Sparkles challenge today where their theme is:-


Here's my take, more beach but with a hint of tropical!

I used this Stampingbella Uptown girl Sandy has a Sombrero and a Uniko sentiment.
I was going to use her for one of my Color Hues posts but went with another image altogether! So she's been languishing my coloured but not used box on my desk and I thought she fit perfectly with the theme and after seeing the photo montage at Stamping Sensations the sombrero matched with the floppy hat of the dog not to mention the beach scene!!
The background was coloured using Copic markers after following a YouTube video by Elaineabella here and placed the already fussy cut Sandy over the top. It looks like the sand is rather hot as she's walking on her tiptoes, a bit like Margot Robbie in the Barbie Movie!
My background was added to a base card then two panels of white were added on top, followed by Sandy with her sombrero. The sentiment was stamped and that was it!

So for more info and inspiration, please check out the rest of the team here, then why not join in?
