Let's have some 'Fun in the Sun'..................

Hello there! 

Well it is time for a fresh challenge over at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and this time the theme is 'Fun in the Sun'.  Now there is sooooo much choice with all the fab Polkadoodle collections that it took me a little while to decide what I wanted to use. That can't be a bad thing can it, having too much choice?! I finally decided on Work & Play Collection 4 because I really wanted to use the male and female bowler! I have never played bowls or even watched them for any length of time, but I really think these images fitted in well with the challenge theme.

The backing papers are from the same collection and although I usually detest the colour green, I think these papers were lovely and fresh and suited the theme and the images perfectly - which is probably why Nikky put them together!! Lol!!

I coloured the images with my Graph'It Markers;

The pens I used are as follows:

Skin: 4120, 4155, 3210, 4145
Hair: 3210, 3145, 3160
Clothes: 9500, 9501, 9502, 9503 & blender
Ladies Visor: 9505, 9506, 9508, 9508
Bowls: 9506, 9507, 9508, 7125, 7170, 8220, 8240

I brightened the background so the images stuck out more, but I'm thinking now you can't see the shading on the white clothes..................................!  The shading is there honestly.

The corner flourishes are from the laser art range from Doobadoo - this range is so versatile I love it! 

So there you have it, my interpretation of 'fun in the sun' I hope you like it!!

See you soon!
