Beach Babes

Well, it is another busy week of house/cat sitting and trying to coordinate between two homes. I keep forgetting to take the right things with me wherever I go. The good news is I finally remembered to take a jpeg with me so that I would have something to post.

A while back, I posted the Art Impressions Dancers. This time I thought I would post the Art Impression Beach Babes. They are so much fun to color! When I used my Copic markers with these ladies, I moved away from my normal "E" Copic colors and went towards "YR" colors. I thought the Yellow-Orange shades gave a more realistic Florida Snowbird skin color. To add some sunburn and blush to the ladies, I added a little of the R20 marker to the shoulders, cheeks, cleavage, and top of the legs.

To finish the card, I added some glossy accents and real sand. I can't decide if I went one step too far with the real sand. Should I have left well enough alone?
