Celebrate MFT!

Two posts today! How fun to play! Today is MFT day over in the SCS forums. This card was for that and today's sketch challenge. I adore this Lilykate paper by Basic Grey, it has a serene feel to me. I thought the "by the seashore" set would be the perfect fit.
I wanted to show you a nice close up of the coloring with copics. I shaded as if the sun was at her back so the left half of her shirt, hat, pants is lighter than the right half. I used my airbrush can to spray a few shots of "sky" and used my green marker to create the grass. The final touch was using the Spica glitter pen by copic for a few fun accents. You can click on this image and see it even closer!

Happy MFT day!
