StampInsanity Challenge 16: Beach Babes Release with Red White and Blue!

Happy July!!! Can you believe this year is already more then half over! Yowzahs! I am pleased to announce that StampInsanity has a new release today! The set is called Beach Babes, and it is fab-u-lous! Put on some sunscreen, ‘cause it’s about to get hot!

Hang-10-1

Beth asked us to use red, white, and blue for this week’s challenge which is SO perfect for this new collection! I used 3 of the brand spankin’ newbies for my card. Henry, Morgan, and the “Hang Ten” sentiment.

Hang-10-2

Here’s a close up of the cute couple. Please click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. I colored these beach babes in with my colored pencils. I’ve gotta say, my 2 fave things here are Morgan’s shades and Henry’s hair. What do you think???

Hang-10-3

I also used a couple of punches. Both from EK Success. And a few pulls of blue chalk ink for a distressed look. I added the yellow in to give the card some sunshine. They are on the beach right???

Now remember, you can only get these awesome StampInsanity images from the Stamp Happens shop. So go grab ‘em! But make sure you stop by the rest of the Groovy Gurlz blogs and leave them some love! And be sure to give our newest Guest Gurl, Shelly, a warm welcome!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
