I really love this image from the A Day at the Beach set by Digi Design House! I coloured it with Copic Markers (chair-E99, E35, R22, R20; water-BG07, BG02, YG03; sky-BG02, Colourless Blender; sailboat-R27, R24; sand-E35, E34, E21, E00) making sure to leave white parts on the water to look like the sun shining on the water. I used a page out of a dictionary and inked with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo). I also added some Kosher Salt to the sand to give it more texture. I saw someone do this recently, but I just can't find the link to give her the credit! I thought it was a great idea, though! Also, the charm was too silver for what I wanted, so I coloured on it with my Copic Marker E99 to give it a more copper or gold look. Here's the closeup of the sand:
