Pirate Maxine

We're opening up another challenge at Simply Challenged Challenges today and the theme is Summer Fun!  The DT have featured images from the Funky Pirates at Simply Betty Stamps and have given their project a warm summery feel to them.  For my project I used Pirate Maxine which is one of my favorites in that line and I used some bright oranges to set the tone.

This image was so fun to color and I even got out my E4 Copic marker and added sharp lines.  I'm getting comfortable with the technique enough that I'll probably do it on all my images (when I remember) since I like how the shadows turn out.  And did you notice my new watermark?  Betty put that together for me - thanks Betty!!  :D

I kept the card simple today but I made sure to add lots and lots of jewels!!  That's what every girl needs, right?  LOL  Be sure to check out the rest of the team's inspirational projects at the SCC Blog and let's see what you Summer Fun projects you can come up with!!
