Merry Monday #44 - Surfin' Santa

Hello Stampers,
Today we are back with the first Merry Monday Challenge for 2013.  Lesley has decided to mix the challenges up and add some variety with this weeks challenge being a colour combo of Island Indigo, Real Red and Pool Party. We are experiencing a Heat Wave in Western Australia at the moment with temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius so I decided the Surfin' Santa from Stampin' Up's Happy Christmas Mate would be an appropriate choice. I coloured it with Markers and an Aqua Painter.  I added Dazzling Diamonds to the wave and Crystal Effects to Santa's Sunnies. I drew in the line for the lights and coloured the tips with a black marker and finished off with a Gelly Roll Pen to add some sparkle. Hope you like it......
