Newton's Nook Designs July Release - Beach Party

let the fun continue!
welcome to day 2 of newton's nook's release and celebration!

the set being featured today is SO FUN!!!!
i LOVE the wave image and the sea shell and surf board...SO perfect for any project life-type or scrapbook layout, or cards! i mean, awesome!

my first card is so FUN! lol!

i was going for a polar bear surfing! ha! so fun, and different! i used part of the surfboard image and then surfing winston on that rockin' wave! easy peasy!!

winston was copic colored and popped up, and then i added some yellow enamel dots to represent the sun! i just LOVE blues/aqua's and yellows/oranges! TOO FUN, right? :)

my 2nd card, i really like, too!

i just HAD to make a card with that puppy catching a frisbee!! and i wanted to make it look like he was in the act of catching it! 
does it look like motion to you? i hope so! i was going for that! :)

i copic colored the images and used some heidi swapp spray for a sun! and what's better than some yellow/orange sequins to add to the sunshine! 

LOVE LOVE LOVE this set, people!
