Catch The Bug Challenge – It’s A Mans World

                   Poppi Lemonade

Our new challenge this week at Catch The Bug is “It’s A Mans World”.  I’ve used the image “Poppi Penguin – Lemonade”. 

I created a background of the sky and clouds with Copics.  Then just added some sand also with copics.  I colored all the image except for the umbrella, which is paper pieced.  The designer paper is from the Sweet Fairy Paper pad.  I’ve used the oval and scalloped die by Spellbinders for the layers behind the image.  The sentiment is another freebie from Create With TLC.  The brad is from a set called Island Lagoon Brads.  I used a Sakura Glaze pen on the glasses, and the lemonade.
