Surfer Dude

Wow... time is just flying by!  Tomorrow is April already and 1/4 of the year has slid by so quickly!  Today's card is another I had published in Whimsy Stamps Inspiration free online magazine.  For this one, I've used Kenny K's Surfer Dude which is available at the Whimsy store.  I always like working with Kenny K's images, either digi or rubber... seems like everything just falls into place.  I used a piece of paper by Cosmo Cricket called Salt Air and the sentiment is one of Raindrop Echo's from the Fast Lane digi set, also available at the Whimsy store.  I tried something different with this one - I used Aleene's Glitter Snow in the sand and when it was dry, I added dabs of Copic colours E13, E53 and YR31.  The image was also coloured with Copics and the charm is one I found in my stash.  The little cork circles are made by Canvas Home Basics.
