Snorkel Ellie

Hi everyone!  Monica here sharing a little beach tote I  made as a gift for my friend daughter.  She likes collecting little knick knacks from the beach and wanted something she could store them in.  So I made her this little tote bag and put Snorkel Ellie on the front.  We did not want to put too much stuff on since it would be getting a lot of use.
She is colored with copics

Hair: E21, E23, E25, E29
Suit: Y15, Y17, Y35, &38

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am a member of a dutch club called Kaarten maken met Tiets, and every 6 weeks we have a digi to give away to the followers of the club.

This is what she made , such a sweet surfer girl , lovely isnt she.

I made a oval card , with a shape from Dutch Doobadoo.
The papers are from Studiolight from the Summer at the beach collection.

I colored Surfer Girl Ellie with distress inkt.
With kit i stick her to the card .

I used chopped mica for the seafoam effect, little bubbels i made with a die from memorybox.
The shells are from marianne design , and the seagulls are from a die from noordesign.
The die cut papers are also from studio light from the summer at the beach collection, and the sentiment made Christine .

I used some dewdrops and stickles stardust to make the card finish.
