Wet and Wild for The Pixie Cottage Challenge #77

This week's theme at The Pixie Cottage is Wet and Wild. Many ways to interpret this...wild animal, beach/lake, a drink, etc. There is also this wonderful sketch to follow. As always, you can follow the theme, the sketch, or both.  Come on in...the water's fine! :)
I went with and sketch, making my card a center step card.  I used the large background image The Dock from The Pixie Cottiage.  Used masking technique to make Willow look like she was sitting on the dock. Entire image was colored with Copics and Prismacolors; clouds were made using Distress Inks.  Flowers are hand-made.  Sentiment from old stamp set, have no idea who made them.  My sewing table has piles of fabric on it and I didn't feel like digging out the machine, so I did some faux stitching. 
There are four super cute new digital images released this week at The Pixie Cottage.  Be sure to check those out and join in the fun!
