June Hump Day Hop: 3 Cheers for Summer!

Hello, friends! It's the last Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month's theme is 3 Cheers for Summer. This means that the project needs to be Summer themed, and has either the number 3 on it, or 3 of something. Here's what I made.

I worked with the beautiful Hula Girl. I colored the girls all the same, except for their hair. Can't you feel the warm breeze and hear the Hawaiian music playing?

I used watercolor markers and Copics to color in the images. I also used the banner from one of the smaller (but just as cool) images from the Hula Girl set.

This month's Hump Day Hop is 14 fabulous participants! I am so happy to see so many folks spreading the Bombshell love. Please be sure to stop by everyone's blog. Below is the full hop list. Thank you for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!!!
