Santa on the Beach


Now here’s the kind of Christmas card I can get into! I barely got this done before work as I started off making something totally different!

I used today’s sketch challenge as my start. This also qualifies for this weeks High Hopes challenge to doodle as the white waves crashing onto the beach are doodled in.

The beach and ocean are masked and airbrushed....FAST! The clouds are sponged using Mother Mark's cloud tutorial....my favorite way to get a great sky FAST!

Gotta run before I'm late for work!

Stamps: High Hopes Tropical Santa, High Hopes Shell Two, High Hopes Palm Tree, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Paper: GP 110, Real Red
Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Copics & Copic airbrush system, Nesties, white gel pen

Enjoy!
