Surf's Up!

I love cute stamps, and this little penguin from Memory Box really fits the bill. I stamped him with Onyx Black Versafine on watercolor paper and colored with markers and a water brush. I picked these funky papers from Pink Martini and chose my colors from there. I love how the swirls in the paper mimic the waves I *tried* to paint under my little surfer. The "surf's up!" is stamped with Karen Foster mini casual snap stamps. Thanks to Beate for her Weekend Sketch Challenge, which I used for this card.
