Fishin' Friends - Summer Days Driftin Away

Happy Hump Day Everyone! Today I have a card to show with one of the newly released Whimsy stamps from the Crissy Armstrong collection called 'Fishin' Friends'! What an adorable couple, don't you think so? :)

Coloring was done using my Copics, as always lately. Definitely need to get out my other coloring mediums again... I'm waiting for my Distress markers to arrive....can't wait to try them :-)
A list of all Copic colors I used is at the end of this posting. The background was done using the Copic airbrush system! Sentiment is from the Summer Oval Letter Seals and cut out with Fun in the Sun Oval Die. I also used the vines die and the elegant flourishes die from Whimsy's Shapeology collection. DP is from Basic Grey. The little 'Made With Love' charm is also from Whimsy. All other embellies are from my stash.

I did some doodling too. After cutting out my image there were wood panels missing and it looked quite awkward so I just drew some more using a Copic Multiliner.

Here's a list of the Copics I used:
Hair: E30-E31-E33
Skin: E11-E00-E000-E0000-R20-R00-R000
Dog: E40-E41-E42-E43-E44-E47-E49
Wood: E31-E34-E37-W3-W5
Pants: B000-B21-B23-B24
Sweater: YG61-YG63-YG67
Cap: E08-E97-E19-E18
For airbrushing the background (the water and sky)
I layered several colors:
