Happy Friday! Oh what a wonderful weekend I have planned! I am headed to the ribbon outlet today and am sure to bring back lots of fun stuff. Then on Sunday Friday Fun Chick Kim is coming down to see me and we are taking a Copic 101 class together. How fun is that?
So today is Kim's last week to hostess this month. Our challenge this week is to make a summer themed card. I had to dig through my stamps and reach WAAAAAYYYYY into the back of the cabinet for this one. My poor neglected Seaside Sketches really needed some love. I love the image of these two girls walking over the dunes. I imagine that to be my twins two weeks from now when we are at the beach...the only difference is that their hair has way more curl than the girls on the stamp. Notice those sand dollars? They are from another long neglected stamp set called Natures Wonders. I stamped them on white Polyshrink and colored and cut them out prior to shrinking them. I love it! I have had the package of polyshrink for at least 8 years and never even opened it. I'm so glad I finally did. I used my copics to color the image and the sand dollars, but for the sky I used my aqua painter and my Baja Breeze stamp pad.
When I looked at this weeks Sketch Challenge (SC230) over at Splitcoast I have to admit I was a bit scared. it looked like a lot of stuff on the card, but the samples were beautiful and Amber encouraged me that it wasn't so bad, so I gave it a try. I think the whole thing came together quite nicely.
