Surf's up!

Hello all!
     So the hubby and I have been joining creative forces and coming up with some T-shirt designs (more on that at a later date) and I had a lightbulb moment with one of the block designs, deciding to turn it into a cutting file for my Cameo!  I've been exploring the wonderful world of Silhouette Cameo quite a bit recently and after watching lots of the very helpful tutorial videos, I came up with this.........


      The background was done using Faber Castell Gelatos, which were feeling lost and abandoned at the bottom of a craft drawer!  I smooshed them around with some water and my fingers - very technical!.  The image was cut on plain black cardstock after I simplified some of fiddly bits - still not sure about the hibiscus flower on his shorts................

     I would like to enter this into the challenges at Tammy's Scrappin corner , The Crazy Challenge , Bearly Mine , Can You Digi It , Oldie but a Goodie and Through the Craftroom Door .


Thanks so much for popping in - I'd love to know what you think of this design :)

Fantastic Dawn. Your are so clever and creative. I can't even get a free SVG file loaded into my cameo and I have the designer series. I'm off to watch some videos. Thanks for sharing this wonderful design.
