Sassy Sarong

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun our theme this fortnight is anything 'Vacation related'.

Vacation to me always means the beach -  Sun, a good book and a Pina Colada!

My image is by Sassy Studio designs and called 'Sassy Sarong', she is the first sassy image I have coloured and she definitely won't be the last, I just loved colouring her. Crafty Caz Weekly I am writing this it is over 30 degrees with a black stormy sky, I would rather be where I imagine this Sassy lady is :)

I have coloured the image with Copics, still practising that skin and hair with my online class at Kit & Clowder, the tutorials Alyce has put together are fab, just need more time to practice.

The Starfish, shells, sentiment and leaves are all from the Silhouette store and the flip flops were cut ages ago on my MIL's Cricut.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
