Sending you sunshine card (Milk Coffee image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I only have one card to show today, what a shocker hehe! I normally post in batches as it takes a while to blog them and add them to challenges. I've got a few images coloured up but I haven't got around to creating cards yet. I'm in the middle of changing my craft area so I may not be creating as much for the next month or so. 

I used some gorgeous beachy papers from a Kaisercraft paper pad for this card. I did add a bit of extra colour to the yellow areas by inking them with my oxide ink, it was easy to go over as the other areas have a glossy cover so the ink wipes right off it. I added the "water" paper to the bottom and made sure to colour the image's waves a similar colour. This is a really old image from Milk Coffee and sadly they no longer sell their images.
