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!!!
