Make a Splash


This card uses Seize the Sketch #23 and A Day For Daisies digital image colored w/Copics using My Minds Eye “Tangerine” 6 x 6 paper pad.  The background technique is called pointillism, which is simply a bunch of dots made with the makers that are more focused in the center and then dissipates toward the edges.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and the banner die is Simon Says Stamp.
