I am missing summer already

Well it has been a while since I last blogged I have been busy with an online copic course which is fantastic, an online photography course which is also amazing and adding some new vegie patches to our existing one.  Down here in Tassie the weather has gotten colder very quickly some days are still warm but the nights have cooled down considerably I think it's 6 overnight tonight brrrr. 
I love summer so when I saw Mad for Markers April Showers challenge all I could think of for the wet theme was beaches ... pushing it a bit I know but it's the best  I could do.  And it was an excuse to colour this gorgeous image California Girl by Krista Smith which is avaliable from her etsy store Saturated Canary digis
I also used the follow copics on x-press it blending card all available at Mad for Markers
Skin E50, E51, E53, R93
Bikini, earrings and towel RV04, Rv02, RV00 and C9
Bag and eyes B05, B02, B00, B0000
Hair - well I'm not exactly sure lots of Es I think E31, E33, E35 and E50 for starters.
Also used C2, C1, Sky blue spica, Clear spica and Pink spica.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
