Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge 23 - Summer Lovin'

Hi crafty friends! Today is the beginning of a new Inky Paws Challenge over on the Newton's Nook Designs blog. This month's challenge is all about summer lovin'. The moment I saw the inspiration photo, I was instantly inspired to make a fun summer card using "Newton's Summer Vacation."
"Wish You Were Here" by Handmade by Yuki | "Newton's Summer Vacation" by Newton's Nook Designs
I watercolored the fun Newton image using ZIG Clean Color Brush Pens. I watercolored the beach using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks. I used Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers for the ocean and Tumbled Glass for the sky. To finish the card, I added Glossy Accents to the umbrella and sunglasses.
