Everybody loves Phyllis Harris stamps and so do I! 🙂 I am so taken by this girl on the beach and the lovely sentiments in the set – The Unknown Path.
My first thought was to break up the sentiment “live. breathe. surf.” and stamp the words on her surfboard. I also like the other sentiment and I think there’s enough space for it to be stamped to the top left side of the image.
My favorite color is teal – I find there’s bits of teal in every card I make. Since the surfboard is my focal point, it has to be teal (Copics BG 10, BG53, BG57) and for some contrast I drew some wavy lines at the bottom of the surfboard (YR21, YR02). Next, I needed a soft color for the girl’s swimsuit, peachy pink is perfect (R14, R12, R11). The girl’s hair and skin are colored with YR23, YR24, E15 and E13, E02, E50.
The sea is colored using B99, B91, BG02, BG11, B21, sand (E31, E11, E55, E000) and skies (BG70, BG10). After coloring the sea, I thought it looked a little flat and I used white gel pen in some areas for interest.
