Beach Fun Lola Addams

It's time for another preview of the new Teen Scene Summer Fun collection from Simply B Stamps. This time, it's Lola Addams. She is always one of my favorite characters in the Teen Scene lineup to work with.

She doesn't look real happy to be out in the sun. In fact, check out what she said..." See you at dusk." Guess she's going into hiding so that her lovely ghost-like complexion doesn't get a bit of color from the sun! That little sentiment is from Smeared Ink and their Creepy lil Grumpies set. I will be entering this card in their Smudgy Antics "Anything Goes" challenge.

I colored Lola with my watercolor markers and my Copics. I really like the look of annoyance on her face! I make that face all the time. Hahaha!

I broke out my ole spiderweb punch from Martha Stewart, because Lola was practically begging for some webs. And I found a skully button in my stash that I also thought worked rather well here. Now it's time for you to visit the SBS Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this unhappy cutie. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
