ISB Challenge - Travel & Vacation

Hi all and a very happy Sunday! I hope everyone of you had a fabulous weekend so far! It's Sunday and that means it's challenge time again! A new ISB challenge is starting today with a very appropriate theme for this time of the year: TRAVEL & VACATION! What a wide-ranging theme! After digging into my stamps I came up with this cute little surfing Tilda; what brilliant match for the theme don't you think so too?

I colored Tilda using Copics and my Copic Airbrush System. For a list of Copics used scroll all the way down in this posting. The DP I've used is from Basic Grey called 'Max & Whiskers'. CS is DCWV and Bazzill. 

On the waves I've used Glitter and Stickles 'Frosty Lace'. To give the air bubbles a dimensional look I added some 3D glaze. I colored the water using the Copic Airbrush System and airbrushed over Tilda's legs so it looks like her feet and legs are submerged in the water.

The sentiment stamp is from magnolia as well as the swirl die.

On the inside I used the 'Doo Hickey' swirls again and the sentiment is from SU!

And here is the card and the matching box.

I hope you like to join us in this fabulous summery challenge! For all the details on the challenge and to enter please visit our ISB Challenge Blog. And while you are there visit my fellow DT sisters blogs for some more fantastic inspiration!
