To the Beach!

Happy New Year! Who's ready for some fun in the sun? When planning this release, poor Suzy never knew that she'd have more snow than I did by now...ROFL

Ah, the beach...I've never tried surfing, but they sure seem useful for drying your bathing suits! Hehehehehe These are super fun to color and with a little masking I was able to stamp the surfboard a second time. I tell ya though, I am so looking forward to the Mirror Image Rubber so I can make a whole string of beach houses!

New stamps used: Surf Shack, Bathing Suit Line, Sandy Toes

I used a mix of Copics and Spectrum Noirs, then added accents with Glossy Accents, white gel pen, and clear Wink of Stella. Because who doesn't love polka dot bikinis and sparkly glitter suits?

This guy turned out big, so I made a 5x7 card base for it and used a woodgrain embossing folder on the white mat layers. The inside got some ivory linen cardstock and a couple oldie-but-goodie stamps: Starfish and Careful What You Wish For.

Colors Used (SN-Spectrum Noir, C-Copic):
Surf Shack - SN: IG1, IG2, BGR1, LG3, LG4, CT3, GG1
Sand - SN: EG1, EB4, GB2, TN1, TN2

Thanks a latte for taking the time to leave me a little note! I love hearing what people think of my creations.
